Central Catecholamines and the Control of Sympathetic Tone

  • David S. Goldstein


An immense literature describes central neuroanatomic pathways that participate directly or indirectly in the regulation of sympathoadrenal function; a similarly immense literature deals with central neural catecholamines and their receptors, in stress and various neurological and psychiatric disorders. This abundance contrasts with a dearth of information specifically about the roles of catecholamines in the central nervous system in the control of sympathetic function.
