Coupling of spontaneous changes in muscle sympathetic nerve activity to blood pressure in humans : potential influence of age [abstract]
Previous studies indicate a 5.5 second latency between a burst of muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) and the resultant peak blood pressure response, which averages up to 3 mmHg. Aging may attenuate α-adrenergic ...
Insulin-mediated increases in arterial baroreflex control of muscle sympathetic nerve activity following meal intake in humans [abstract]
Animal studies indicate that insulin enhances arterial baroreflex (ABR) control of sympathetic nerve activity (SNA); however, the extent to which these findings can be extrapolated to humans is unknown. To begin to address ...
Alterations in carotid baroreflex control of arterial blood pressure during the menstrual cycle in young women [abstract]
Limited studies have suggested that menstrual cycle variations in sex hormones may influence arterial baroreflex control of heart rate (HR) and sympathetic nerve activity, however, results are equivocal. In addition, the ...
Selective attenuation of carotid-cardiac responses to hypertension at the onset of static handgrip in humans [abstract]
Previous studies have indicated that at the onset of exercise cardiac baroreflex function is reduced in an intensity-dependent manner, which appears to be mediated by a blunted ability to buffer hypertensive challenges. ...
