Hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide (HCN) channels, which are also stronglylinked to mechanoreception in arterial baroreceptors
, are shown to be upregulated in type 1 diabetes mellitus leading to a reduced baroreceptor
function that can be rescued with tempol .
sup] In addition, surgical removal of a carotid plaque caused immediate partial disruption of the baroreceptor
activity leading to increased arterial pressure instability.
information affects striatal dopamine release measured by voltammetry in rats.
He further explained that if their hypothesis is proven right then arterial stiffness and baroreceptor
signaling will become hotspot targets for the treatment of high blood pressure and the development of new medicines and medical devices.
Moreover, our findings strongly suggest that NADH-stimulated RMSAP might be under the inhibitory control of aortic baroreceptors
, suggesting again that this response could be mediated by an increase in baseline efferent RSNA.
5] However, the limitations of our study include the small sample size; use of a sphygmomanometer to record BP instead of beat-to beat-BP monitoring (which would have helped determine BP variability and baroreceptor
sensitivity) and use of the isometric hand- grip test which is considered insensitive in assessing sympathetic activity.
Influence of smoking on baroreceptor
function: 24 h measurements.
The system works by electrically activating the baroreceptors
located in the carotid artery, the body's natural blood pressure sensors that regulate cardiovascular function.
could be considered as playing part of a shared physiological modulatory mechanism.
The increased central blood volume via arterial baroreceptors
imposes a greater vagal activation and reduces heart rate and cardiac output (Rowell, 1993).

Reflex effects of hepatic baroreceptors
