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