Sympathoinhibitory pathway from caudal midline medulla to RVLM is independent of baroreceptor reflex pathway

Potas, Jason; Dampney, Roger A L


Glutamate stimulation of the caudal midline medulla (CMM) causes profound sympathoinhibition due to GABAergic inhibition of presympathetic neurons in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM). We investigated whether the sympatho-inhibitory pathway from CMM to RVLM, like the central baroreceptor reflex pathway, includes a glutamatergic synapse in the caudal ventrolateral medulla (CVLM). In pentobarbital sodium-anesthetized rats, the RVLM on one side was inhibited by a muscimol microinjection....[Show more]
