Senescence and baroreflex control

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


It is difficult to reject the hypothesis that altered arterial baroreceptor function contributes substantially to the hemodynamic responses of senescent rats. Decreased baroreceptor sensitivity in senescent rats might also help to account for the similar responses in heart rate of the adult (6-9 months) and old (24-26 months) groups in the face of much greater systolic pressure changes in the senescent group.
