Abstract

Sympathetic nerve responses to posterior hypothalamic stimulation were recorded from the preceliac splanchnic nerve in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and normotensive, Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) following interruption of the baroreceptor reflex. Responses to identical stimulation were then recorded following ganglionic blockade with hexamethonium. The enhanced preganglionic sympathetic nerve responses measured in SHR indicate that the sympathetic hyperresponsiveness in this hypertensive strain occurs, at least in part, at a site within the central nervous system.
