A distinct subpopulation of neurons in the rostral and ventrolateral part of the medulla oblongata (RVL) plays a key role in controlling sympathetic vasomotor tone. To characterize these neurons under conditions in which all cell-to-cell interactions are eliminated, RVL neurons were acutely dissociated from 13- to 19-day old rats. Cells projecting to the upper thoracic segments were retrogradely labeled with fluorescent beads. Fifty-two percent (17/33) of examined spinally projecting neurons… CONTINUE READING
