  • right and left car
  • Interaction of right and left carotid sinus baroreflexes in the dog. (mcw.edu)
  • The right and left carotid sinus regions were isolated and perfused at controlled pressures. (mcw.edu)
  • Pressure in the right and left carotid sinuses were independently varied, and the resulting steady-state reflex changes in arterial pressure, heart rate, respiratory frequency, tidal volume, and total ventilation were measured. (mcw.edu)
  • An additional inhibitory summation between the right and left carotid sinuses was found such that simultaneous excitation of both receptors resulted in a smaller reflex response than did the sum of individual responses. (mcw.edu)
  • chemoreceptors
  • Carotid bodies (CB) are peripheral chemoreceptors whose main stimulus is hypoxia, and it was proposed that they can act as glucose sensors implicated in energy homeostasis control. (ul.pt)

  • cavernous sinus an irregularly shaped venous channel between the layers of dura mater of the brain, one on either side of the body of the sphenoid bone and communicating across the midline. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • circular sinus the venous channel encircling the pituitary gland, formed by the two cavernous sinuses and the anterior and posterior intercavernous sinuses. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • occipital sinus a venous sinus between the layers of dura mater, passing upward along the midline of the cerebellum. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • petrosal sinus, inferior a venous channel arising from the cavernous sinus and draining into the internal jugular vein. (thefreedictionary.com)
