Baroreceptor Discharge Behavior and Resetting

  • Chapter
Baroreceptor Reflexes

Abstract

It is widely recognized that the arterial baroreceptors play a key role in the operation of the cardiovascular function and reflex regulation of blood pressure under normal and pathological conditions. Of the two major arterial baroreceptors, the aortic baroreceptors and their contribution to the reflex regulation of blood pressure were the first to be discovered [60]. In contrast, the origin and function of the carotid sinus baroreceptors was discovered 2 decades later when Hering [54] showed that stimulation of the carotid sinus or its nerve produced reflex bradycardia and hypotension.
