Investigates the effects of exposure on the baseline autonomic balance in cardiovascular regulation using spectral analysis of cardiovascular variables measured during supine rest. Indication of a reduced heart rate power in the respiratory frequency region; Indication of an increase in the low frequency power in arterial pressure, heart rate and radial flow.

    We have previously reported that chemical stimulation of the hypothalamic arcuate nucleus (ARCN) in the rat elicited increases as well as decreases in blood pressure (BP) and sympathetic nerve activity (SNA). The type of response elicited from the ARCN (i.e., increase or decrease in BP and SNA)...

    BackgroundIn this study, we assessed whether the white-coat effect (difference between office and daytime blood pressure (BP)) is associated with nondipping (absence of BP decrease at night).MethodsData were available in 371 individuals of African descent from 74 families selected from a...

    It has been postulated that cardiovascular reactivity to mental stress varies with tonic central sympathetic nervous system activity, but pharmacological evidence is missing. To test whether modulation of central sympathetic nervous system activity by alpha2-adrenergic agonism and antagonism...

    Heart rate variability (HRV), the beat-to-beat alterations in heart rate, comprises sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve activities of the heart. HRV analysis is used to quantify cardiac autonomic regulation. Since respiration could be a confounding factor in HRV evaluation, some studies...

    The mechanism of 1/f scaling of heartbeat intervals remains unknown. We recorded heartbeat intervals, sympathetic nerve activity, and blood pressure in conscious rats with normal or high blood pressure. Using nonlinear analyses, we demonstrate that the dynamics of this system of 3 variables is...
