Heterogeneous Control of Blood Flow amongst Different Vascular Beds

Hill, Caryl; Phillips, John; Sandow, Shaun L


The control and maintenance of vascular tone is due to a balance between vasoconstrictor and vasodilator pathways. Vasomotor responses to neural, metabolic and physical factors vary between vessels in different vascular beds, as well as along the same bed, particularly as vessels become smaller. These differences result from variation in the composition of neurotransmitters released by perivascular nerves, variation in the array and activation of receptor subtypes expressed in different...[Show more]
