Regional differentiation of the sympathetic nerve activities produced by the activation of baroreflex

Research field (1): General physiology
Research overview:
One of the characteristics of the systemic sympathetic nerve activities is its inhibition during a rise in arterial blood pressure via baroreflex. On the other hand, cerebral vessels must be constricted to maintain cerebral blood flow constant (cerebral autoregulation) during hypertension. It is also reported that the sympathetic nerves to the cerebral vessels play a prominent role in cerebral autoregulation. We have a hypothesis that the sympathetic nerves to the cerebral vessels may be activated during hypertension and demonstrate this hypothesis.
