The thoracolumbar division of the autonomic nervous system. Sympathetic preganglionic fibers originate in neurons of the intermediolateral column of the spinal cord and project to the paravertebral and prevertebral ganglia, which in turn project to target organs. The sympathetic nervous system mediates the body's response to stressful situations, i.e., the fight or flight reactions. It often acts reciprocally to the parasympathetic system.
Paired bundles of NERVE FIBERS entering and leaving the SPINAL CORD at each segment. The dorsal and ventral nerve roots join to form the mixed segmental spinal nerves. The dorsal roots are generally afferent, formed by the central projections of the spinal (dorsal root) ganglia sensory cells, and the ventral roots are efferent, comprising the axons of spinal motor and PREGANGLIONIC AUTONOMIC FIBERS.

Further evidence that prostaglandins inhibit the release of noradrenaline from adrenergic nerve terminals by restriction of availability of calcium. (1/5862)

1 Guinea-pig vasa deferentia were continuously superfused after labelling the transmitter stores with [3H](-)-noradrenaline. Release of [3H]-(-)-noradrenaline was induced by transmural nerve stimulation. 2 Prostglandin E2 (14 nM) drastically reduced the release of [3H]-(-)-noradrenaline, while tetraethylammonium (2 mM), rubidium (6 mM), phenoxybenzamine (3 muM) each in the presence or absence of Uptake 1 or 2 blockade, and prolonged pulse duration (from 0.5 to 2.0 ms) all significantly increased the release of [3H]-(-)-noradrenaline per nerve impulse. 3 The inhibitory effect of prostaglandin E2 on evoked release of [3H]-(-)-noradrenaline was significantly reduced by tetraethylammonium, rubidium and prolonged pulse duration, whilst it was actually enhanced by phenoxybenzamine. This indicates that increased release of noradrenaline per nerve impulse does not per se counteract the inhibitory effect of prostaglandin E2. 4 It is concluded that tetraethylammonium, rubidium and prolonged pulse duration counteracted the inhibitory effect of prostaglandin E2 on T3H]-(-)-noradrenaline release by promoting calcium influx during the nerve action potential. The results are consistent with, and add more weight to the view that prostaglandins inhibit the release of noradrenaline by restriction of calcium availability.  (+info)

Hierarchy of ventricular pacemakers. (2/5862)

To characterize the pattern of pacemaker dominance in the ventricular specialized conduction system (VSCS), escape ventricular pacemakers were localized and quantified in vivo and in virto, in normal hearts and in hearts 24 hours after myocardial infarction. Excape pacemaker foci were localized in vivo during vagally induced atrial arrest by means of electrograms recorded from the His bundle and proximal bundle branches and standard electrocardiographic limb leads. The VSCS was isolated using a modified Elizari preparation or preparations of each bundle branch. Peacemakers were located by extra- and intracellular recordings. Escape pacemaker foci in vivo were always in the proximal conduction system, usually the left bundle branch. The rate was 43+/-11 (mean+/-SD) beats/min. After beta-adrenergic blockade, the mean rate fell to 31+/-10 beats/min, but there were no shifts in pacemaker location. In the infarcted hearts, pacemakers were located in the peripheral left bundle branch. The mean rate was 146+/-20 beats/min. In isolated normal preparations, the dominant pacemakers usually were in the His bundle, firing at a mean rate of 43+/-10 beats/min. The rates of pacemakers diminished with distal progression. In infarcted hearts, the pacemakers invariably were in the infarct zone. The mean firing rates were not influenced by beta-adrenergic blockade. The results indicate that the dominant pacemakers are normally in the very proximal VSCS, but after myocardial infarction pacemaker dominance is shifted into the infarct. Distribution of pacemaker dominance is independent of sympathetic influence.  (+info)

Ganglioneuromas and renal anomalies are induced by activated RET(MEN2B) in transgenic mice. (3/5862)

Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2B (MEN2B) is an autosomal dominant syndrome characterized by the development of medullary thyroid carcinoma, pheochromocytomas, musculoskeletal anomalies and mucosal ganglioneuromas. MEN2B is caused by a specific mutation (Met918-->Thr) in the RET receptor tyrosine kinase. Different mutations of RET lead to other conditions including MEN2A, familial medullary thyroid carcinoma and intestinal aganglionosis (Hirschsprung disease). Transgenic mice were created using the dopamine beta-hydroxylase promoter to direct expression of RET(MEN2B) in the developing sympathetic and enteric nervous systems and the adrenal medulla. DbetaH-RET(MEN2B) transgenic mice developed benign neuroglial tumors, histologically identical to human ganglioneuromas, in their sympathetic nervous systems and adrenal glands. The enteric nervous system was not affected. The neoplasms in DbetaH-RET(MEN2B) mice were similar to benign neuroglial tumors induced in transgenic mice by activated Ras expression under control of the same promoter. Levels of phosphorylated MAP kinase were not increased in the RET(MEN2B)-induced neurolglial proliferations, suggesting that alternative pathways may play a role in the pathogenesis of these lesions. Transgenic mice with the highest levels of DbetaH-RET(MEN2B) expression, unexpectedly developed renal malformations analogous to those reported with loss of function mutations in the Ret gene.  (+info)

Effects of amlodipine on sympathetic nerve traffic and baroreflex control of circulation in heart failure. (4/5862)

Short-acting calcium antagonists exert a sympathoexcitation that in heart failure further enhances an already elevated sympathetic activity. Whether this is also the case for long-acting formulations is not yet established, despite the prognostic importance of sympathetic activation in heart failure. It is also undetermined whether in this condition long-acting calcium antagonists favorably affect a mechanism potentially responsible for the sympathetic activation, ie, the baroreflex impairment. In 28 heart failure patients (NYHA functional class II) under conventional treatment we measured plasma norepinephrine and efferent postganglionic muscle sympathetic nerve activity (microneurography) at rest and during arterial baroreceptor stimulation and deactivation induced by stepwise intravenous infusions of phenylephrine and nitroprusside, respectively. Measurements were performed at baseline and after 8 weeks of daily oral amlodipine administration (10 mg/d, 14 patients) or before and after an 8-week period without calcium antagonist administration (14 patients). Amlodipine caused a small and insignificant blood pressure reduction. Heart rate, left ventricular ejection fraction, and plasma renin and aldosterone concentrations were not affected. This was the case also for plasma norepinephrine (from 2.43+/-0.41 to 2.50+/-0.34 nmol/L, mean+/-SEM), muscle sympathetic nerve activity (from 54.4+/-5.9 to 51.0+/-4.3 bursts/min), and arterial baroreflex responses. No change in the above-mentioned variables was seen in the control group. Thus, in mild heart failure amlodipine treatment does not adversely affect sympathetic activity and baroreflex control of the heart and sympathetic tone. This implies that in this condition long-acting calcium antagonists can be administered without untoward neurohumoral effects anytime conventional treatment needs to be complemented by drugs causing additional vasodilatation.  (+info)

Cardiac sympathetic activity estimated by 123I-MIBG myocardial imaging in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy after beta-blocker or angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor therapy. (5/5862)

Impaired cardiac sympathetic activity can be evaluated by 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) imaging. METHODS: We studied the significance of MIBG imaging for 24 patients (age 58+/-12 y) with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). We compared 12 patients (group A) treated with metoprolol (dose from 30-60 mg/d) with 12 patients treated with angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. Patients were studied before treatment, after 5 mo of treatment (only in group A) and after 1 y of treatment. Cardiac MIBG uptake was assessed as the heart-to-mediastinum activity ratio (H/M) and total defect score (TDS) from anterior planar and SPECT MIBG images, which were acquired in 4 h after tracer injection. New York Heart Association (NYHA) class and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) calculated by echocardiography were also assessed. RESULTS: TDS decreased in both groups (in group A, from 30+/-7 through 23+/-9 to 18+/-10; P < 0.01, in group B, from 30+/-6 to 24+/-8; P < 0.01) and H/M was increased in both groups (in group A, from 1.87+/-0.31 through 2.03+/-0.28 to 2.14+/-0.29; P < 0.01, in group B, from 1.82+/-0.28 to 1.94+/-0.26; P < 0.05). But TDS and H/M were more improved in group A than in group B (P < 0.05). LVEF was significantly increased in only group A (from 38+/-6 through 43+/-8 to 49%+/-9%; P < 0.01). NYHA improved in both groups (in group A, from mean 2.5 through 2.1 to 1.8; P < 0.01, in group B, from mean 2.6 to 2.1; P < 0.05) but was more improved in group A than in group B (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: Cardiac function, symptom and cardiac sympathetic activity evaluated by MIBG images improved after the beta-blocker therapy more than with the treatment that used ACE inhibitors.  (+info)

Sympathetic nerve alterations assessed with 123I-MIBG in the failing human heart. (6/5862)

Norepinephrine (NE) reuptake function is impaired in heart failure and this may participate in myocyte hyperstimulation by the neurotransmitter. This alteration can be assessed by 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scintigraphy. METHODS: To determine whether the impairment of neuronal NE reuptake was reversible after metoprolol therapy, we studied 18 patients (43+/-7 y) with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy who were stabilized at least for 3 mo with captopril and diuretics. Patients underwent, before and after 6 mo of therapy with metoprolol, measurements of radionuclide left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), maximal oxygen consumption and plasma NE concentration. The cardiac adrenergic innervation function was scintigraphically assessed with MIBG uptake and release measurements on the planar images obtained 20 min and 4 h after tracer injection. To evaluate whether metoprolol had a direct interaction with cardiac MIBG uptake and release, six normal subjects were studied before and after a 1-mo metoprolol intake. RESULTS: In controls, neither cardiac MIBG uptake and release nor circulating NE concentration changed after the 1-mo metoprolol intake. Conversely, after a 6-mo therapy with metoprolol, patients showed increased cardiac MIBG uptake (129%+/-10% versus 138%+/-17%; P = 0.009), unchanged cardiac MIBG release and decreased plasma NE concentration (0.930+/-412 versus 0.721+/-0.370 ng/mL; P = 0.02). In parallel, patients showed improved New York Heart Association class (2.44+/-0.51 versus 2.05+/-0.23; P = 0.004) and increased LVEF (20%+/-8% versus 27%+/-8%; P = 0.0005), whereas maximal oxygen uptake remained unchanged. CONCLUSION: Thus, a parallel improvement of myocardial NE reuptake and of hemodynamics was observed after a 6-mo metoprolol therapy, suggesting that such agents may be beneficial in heart failure by directly protecting the myocardium against excessive NE stimulation.  (+info)

Regional patterns of myocardial sympathetic denervation in dilated cardiomyopathy: an analysis using carbon-11 hydroxyephedrine and positron emission tomography. (7/5862)

OBJECTIVE: To assess presynaptic function of cardiac autonomic innervation in patients with advanced congestive heart failure using positron emission tomography (PET) and the recently developed radiolabelled catecholamine analogue carbon-11 hydroxyephedrine (HED) as a marker for neuronal catecholamine uptake function. DESIGN AND PATIENTS: 29 patients suffering from dilated cardiomyopathy with moderate to severe heart failure were compared with eight healthy controls. Perfusion scan was followed by HED dynamic PET imaging of cardiac sympathetic innervation. The scintigraphic results were compared with markers of disease severity and the degree of sympathetic dysfunction assessed by means of heart rate variability. RESULTS: In contrast to nearly normal perfusions, mean (SD) HED retention in dilated cardiomyopathy patients was abnormal in 64 (32)% of the left ventricle. Absolute myocardial HED retention was 10.7 (1.0)%/min in controls v 6.2 (1.6)%/min in dilated cardiomyopathy patients (p < 0.001). Moreover, significant regional reduction of HED retention was demonstrated in apical and inferoapical segments. HED retention was significantly correlated with New York Heart Association functional class (r = -0.55, p = 0. 002) and ejection fraction (r = 0.63, p < 0.001), but not, however, with plasma noradrenaline concentrations as well as parameters of heart rate variability. CONCLUSIONS: In this study, using PET in combination with HED in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy, not only global reduction but also regional abnormalities of cardiac sympathetic tracer uptake were demonstrated. The degree of abnormality was positively correlated to markers of severity of heart failure. The pathogenetic mechanisms leading to the regional differences of neuronal damage as well as the prognostic significance of these findings remain to be defined.  (+info)

Localization of sympathetic, parasympathetic and sensory neurons innervating the heart of the Beijing duck by means of the retrograde transport of horseradish peroxidase. (8/5862)

Sympathetic, parasympathetic and sensory neurons were labeled by injections of horseradish peroxidase into various regions of the heart in 33 Beijing ducks. Sympathetic postganglionic neurons innervating the heart were located in the paravertebral ganglia C15 (C16 is the last cervical segment in the duck) to T3, especially in the ganglion T1. The coronary sulcus and ventricle were more abundantly innervated by sympathetic neurons than the atrium. The left side of the heart was preferentially innervated by sympathetic postganglionic neurons in the left side of paravertebral ganglia but the right side of the heart were equally supplied from the right and left ganglia. Within the medulla oblongata, the number of labeled vagal preganglionic neurons in the nucleus ambiguus was much greater than that in the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus nerve. Labeled neurons of the nucleus ambiguus were found in many ducks injected into the coronary sulcus. Cardiac sensory neurons were observed in the dorsal root ganglia C15 to T2 (highest in the ganglion T1) and in the nodose and jugular ganglia of the vagus nerve. These labeled neurons probably form the afferent and efferent limbs of cardiac reflexes and control circulation in the Beijing duck.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Chronic kidney disease. T2 - Role of sympathetic nervous system activation and potential benefits of renal denervation. AU - Hering, Dagmara. AU - Esler, Murray D.. AU - Schlaich, Markus P.. PY - 2013. Y1 - 2013. N2 - The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage renal disease continues to increase worldwide. Hypertension and diabetes are recognised as two major factors contributing to further progression of CKD. Importantly, progressive renal impairment increases cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Despite advances in pharmacological antihypertensive and anti-diabetic approaches, the alarming number of patients developing nephropathy indicates the failure of the available treatment strategies. The relevance of sympathetic activation for the development and progression of chronic kidney disease is well established. Likewise, progressive renal failure results in exaggerated sympathetic activation leading to a vicious cycle, providing the rationale for the use of ...
Exposure to maternal obesity or a maternal diet rich in fat during development may have adverse outcomes in offspring, such as the development of obesity and hypertension. The present study examined the effect of a maternal high-fat diet (m-HFD) on offspring blood pressure and renal sympathetic nerve activity, responses to stress, and sensitivity to central administration of leptin and ghrelin. Offspring of New Zealand white rabbits fed a 13% HFD were slightly heavier than offspring from mothers fed a 4% maternal normal fat diet (P,0.05) but had 64% greater fat pad mass (P=0.015). Mean arterial pressure, heart rate, and renal sympathetic nerve activity at 4 months of age were 7%, 7%, and 24% greater, respectively (P,0.001), in m-HFD compared with maternal normal fat diet rabbits, and the renal sympathetic nerve activity response to airjet stress was enhanced in the m-HFD group. m-HFD offspring had markedly elevated pressor and renal sympathetic nerve activity responses to intracerebroventricular ...
One common reaction to CSA is chronic elevated SNS activity or physiologic hyperarousal. Symptoms of increased SNS activity can include increased heart rate, increased respiration, muscle tension, perspiration, exaggerated startle response, and difficulty sleeping. Increased SNS activation has been linked to trauma exposure in general and to certain psychological disorders, especially anxiety disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Although this physiologic response is common to all major traumas, in childhood trauma the increased SNS activity begins so early in life that it can fundamentally alter the individuals overall physiologic functioning and put that individual at increased risk for stress-related disorders. Activity of the SNS naturally increases during sexual arousal. Studies on the relation between SNS arousal and sexual arousal in women have identified an optimal level of SNS arousal for facilitating genital sexual arousal (Lorenz, Harte, Hamilton, & Meston, 2012). ...
Backgrounds: Efferent sympathetic activity is increased in patients with chronic renal failure possibly through the mechanisms of excitatory sympathetic afferents from the damaged kidney. We examined whether renal insufficiency (RI) contributes to elevated sympathetic activity in patients with heart failure.. Methods: We determined resting muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) in 87 patients with heart failure (ejection fraction (EF) , 0.45). Estimated glomerular filtration rates (eGFR) , 60 ml/min/1.73 m2 were determined using the simplified Modification of Diet in Renal Disease equation to identify RI.. Results: Forty-three percent of the patients had RI (n=37). Mean age, gender and body mass index did not significantly differ between the RI group and no RI one. However, specific activity scale and ejection fraction were lower, usages of diuretics, beta-blockers and statins were more frequent among RI group compared with no RI one. MSNA values were significantly higher in RI group (burst ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Both central command and exercise pressor reflex activate cardiac sympathetic nerve activity in decerebrate cats. AU - Tsuchimochi, Hirotsugu. AU - Hayes, Shawn G.. AU - McCord, Jennifer L.. AU - Kaufman, Marc P. PY - 2009/4. Y1 - 2009/4. N2 - Both static and dynamic exercise are known to increase cardiac pump function as well as arterial blood pressure. Feedforward control by central command and feedback control by the exercise pressor reflex are thought to be the neural mechanisms causing these effects during exercise. It remains unknown as to how each mechanism activates cardiac sympathetic nerve activity (CSNA) during exercise, especially at its onset. Thus we examined the response of CSNA to stimulation of the mesencephalic locomotor region (MLR, i.e., central command) and to static muscle contraction of the triceps surae muscles or stretch of the calcaneal tendon in decerebrate cats. We found that MLR stimulation immediately increased CSNA, which was followed by a gradual ...
Leptin binds to receptors in multiple hypothalamic nuclei to increase sympathetic nerve activity; however, the neurocircuitry is unclear. Here, using anesthetized male Sprague-Dawley rats, we investigated the role of the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus. Intracerebroventricular injection of leptin slowly increased lumbar sympathetic nerve activity (LSNA), heart rate, mean arterial pressure, and baroreflex control of LSNA and heart rate. Inhibition of the paraventricular nucleus with muscimol completely reversed leptins effects. Blockade of paraventricular melanocortin 3/4 receptors with SHU9119 or ionotropic glutamate receptors with kynurenate, alone or together, each partially reversed the effects of leptin, implicating increased activation of glutamate and melanocortin 3/4 receptors. Conversely, although blockade of neuropeptide Y Y1 receptors in the paraventricular nucleus increased LSNA, mean arterial pressure, and heart rate, these responses were prevented by ...
We studied the effects of intense sympathetic stimulation on the chronotropic responses of the heart to subsequent test stimulations of the cardiac autonomic nerves in dogs anesthetized with alpha-chloralose. Such intense sympathetic stimulations (which we refer to as release stimulations) are known to release neuropeptide Y as well as norepinephrine. The changes in cardiac cycle length evoked by vagal and sympathetic test stimulations were progressively more attenuated as we increased the frequency and duration of the antecedent sympathetic release stimulations. We found that 2.5 minutes after a maximal release stimulation (30 Hz for 5 minutes), the mean +/- SEM chronotropic responses to the vagal and sympathetic test stimulations were diminished to 36.5 +/- 1.6% and 54.7 +/- 1.3% respectively, of the prestimulation responses. The mean times for the chronotropic responses to the vagal and sympathetic test stimulations to recover to their control values were 52.0 +/- 1.3 and 63.2 +/- 2.9 ...
Intoduction: Sympathetic activation contributes to both the initiation and progression of heart failure. The role of anemia in determining sympathetic overactivity in chronic heart failure (CHF) patients is unknown. We tested the hypothesis that, in CHF patients, anemia could lead to increased sympathetic activity through tonic activation of excitatory chemoreceptor afferents.. Methods: We conducted a double-blind, randomized, vehicle-controlled study to examine the effect of chemoreflex deactivation on muscle sympathetic nerve activity in CHF patients with and without anemia. We compared the effect of breathing 100%; oxygen for 15 minutes in 18 stable CHF patients with anemia and 18 control CHF patients matched for age, sex, blood pressure, and body mass index.. Results: Baseline muscle sympathetic nerve activity was significantly elevated in CHF patients with anemia compared with patients with CHF alone (56.0+/−3.2 versus 45.5+/−3.1 bursts per minute; P,0.0237). Administration of 100%; ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Chronic exercise reduces sympathetic nerve activity in rabbits with pacing-induced heart failure. T2 - A role for angiotensin II. AU - Liu, Jun Li. AU - Irvine, Scott. AU - Reid, Ian A.. AU - Patel, Kaushik P. AU - Zucker, Irving H. PY - 2000/10/10. Y1 - 2000/10/10. N2 - Background - Chronic exercise (EX) improves the quality of life and increases the survival of patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Because sympathetic nerve activity is elevated in the CHF state, it is possible that EX is beneficial in this disease due to a decrease in sympathetic outflow. Methods and Results - We evaluated arterial baroreflex function and resting renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) in EX normal and CHF rabbits before and after angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) receptor blockade. Four groups of rabbits were studied: a normal non-EX group, a normal EX group, a CHF non-EX group, and a CHF EX group. EX lowered resting RSNA in rabbits with CHF but not in normal rabbits. In addition, EX increased ...
The body has defensive responses to correct low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). A vital component of this response is release of glucagon and activation of the sympathetic nervous system, which provides the means for raising blood glucose levels towards normal. We can measure circulating hormones indicating the level of these responses, but additionally, sympathetic nervous system responses can be measured directly. We can measure the sympathetic nerve activity that controls blood flow to muscles (MSNA) and blood flow and sweating to skin (SSNA). The purpose of this study is to determine if either hypoglycemia or exercise cause differential responses in muscle and skin sympathetic nerve activity. We would also like to determine what the sympathetic response is to cycling exercise with insulin and normal blood sugar. Therefore, we would like to test the sympathetic responses to insulin with normal blood glucose, hypoglycemia, and during exercise bouts and normal blood glucose, with or without insulin ...
Mechanical and metabolic signals arising during skeletal muscle contraction reflexly increase sympathetic nerve activity and blood pressure (i.e., the exercise pressor reflex). In a rat model of simulated peripheral artery disease (PAD) in which a femoral artery is chronically (~72 hours) ligated, the mechanically-sensitive component of the exercise pressor reflex during 1 Hz dynamic contraction is exaggerated compared to that found in normal rats. Whether this is due to an enhanced acute sensitization of mechanoreceptors by metabolites produced during contraction or involves a chronic sensitization of mechanoreceptors is unknown. To investigate this issue, in decerebrate, unanesthetized rats we tested the hypothesis that the increases in mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) and renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) during 1 Hz dynamic stretch are larger when evoked from a previously ligated hindlimb compared to those evoked from the contralateral freely perfused hindlimb. Dynamic stretch ...

Neuropepetide Y (NPY) is best known for its powerful stimulation of food intake and its effects on reducing energy expenditure. However, the pathways involved and the regulatory mechanisms behind this are not well understood. Here we demonstrate that NPY derived from the arcuate nucleus (Arc) is critical for the control of sympathetic outflow and brown adipose tissue (BAT) function. Mechanistically, a key change induced by Arc NPY signaling is a marked Y1 receptor-mediated reduction in tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) expression in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN), which is also associated with a reduction in TH expression in the locus coeruleus (LC) and other regions in the brainstem. Consistent with this, Arc NPY signaling decreased sympathetically innervated BAT thermogenesis, involving the downregulation of uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1) expression in BAT. Taken together, these data reveal a powerful Arc-NPY-regulated neuronal circuit that controls BAT thermogenesis and sympathetic output via TH
There is strong evidence that patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) have an increased risk of developing coronary heart disease (CHD). This elevated risk is independent of standard risk factors such as smoking, obesity, high cholesterol, diabetes, and high blood pressure. The relative risk of developing CHD is proportional to the severity of depression (the more severe the depression, the more likely the development of CHD).. The sympathetic nervous system (the part of your nervous system that makes your heart beat harder and faster) is responsible for our flight and fight response to a threatening situation. It has been determined that increased sympathetic nervous system activation occurs in approximately one in three untreated patients with MDD (with no underlying CHD). There is growing evidence linking elevated sympathetic activity to early stages of kidney dysfunction and an increased incidence of cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) disease development (eg, heart attacks). ...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with the development of obesity and is a significant contributor to chronic liver, metabolic, and cardiovascular diseases. We have recently shown that hepatic sympathetic nerve activity is significantly elevated in mice fed a high fat diet (HFD; 33±2 vs. 63±5 spikes/s, normal chow vs. HFD; p|0.05), although the contribution of the sympathetic nervous system to NAFLD pathology remains unclear. Therefore, we tested the hypothesis that sympathetic overactivity contributes to NAFLD during diet-induced obesity. Male C57B1/6 mice were fed a HFD (60% fat) or normal chow (5% fat) for 15 weeks. 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA, 150 mg/kg i.p.) was then administered to selectively destroy sympathetic nerves, or vehicle control (n=4/group), and mice were sacrificed 3 days later. 6-OHDA treatment did not influence body weight (e.g. 41±3 vs. 40±2 g; HFD-vehicle vs. HFD-OHDA; p|0.05) or visceral adipose tissue mass in normal chow or HFD fed animals. However, HFD
Results: High fat feeding induced autonomic dysfunction, hypertension and type-II diabetes, which was reversed using exercise; independent of weight loss. In healthy control mice, activation of sympathetic nerves in PVAT exerts an anti-contractile effect mediated through OCT3, and release of adiponectin via β3-adrenoceptor activation. This mechanism was also dependent on nitric oxide synthase (NOS). In obesity, the anti-contractile effect was lost, and could not be restored via β3-adrenoceptor activation. Using immunohistochemistry, β3-adrenoceptors and OCT3 were shown to be downregulated in obesity. Moreover, adiponectin no longer exerts vasodilation. However, activation of NOS was able to restore anti-contractile function. Additionally, healthy sympathetic hyperstimulation i.e. exercise, reversed PVAT dysfunction in obesity by reducing inflammation of PVAT, and increasing β3-adrenoceptor and OCT3 expression; restoring the healthy PVAT anti-contractile mechanism. Furthermore, ...
There is no question that environmental stress and even personal stress can negatively affect the appearance of your skin. The human body is continually making changes to maintain a constant balance inside the body and in relationship to external factors. The catch is that our bodies are having more difficulty adjusting themselves to modern stressors such as those of hypertension, smoking, diabetes, poor nutritional habits, pollution, heavy drinking, insufficient sleep, emotional exhaustion, etc., that can cause continual sympathetic nervous system activation with very little opportunity for the parasympathetic nervous system to activate and cope with the burdens we impose on our body or from demands from our environment ...

Researchers analyzed the gut-brain connection in mice and found evidence of sympathetic nervous system activation outside the gut and that it is controlled by microbiota via a gut-brain circuit.
1. Local regulation of subcutaneous blood flow in the forearm was studied in the acute phase of myocardial infarction. Blood flow was measured by the local 133Xe-washout technique.. 2. Plasma concentrations of noradrenaline and adrenaline were increased on day 1, suggesting an increase in sympathetic neuronal activity, but gradually returned to normal thereafter.. 3. Subcutaneous blood flow on day 1 was far below normal (38%) and steadily increased to reach normal at day 7 after coronary occlusion. The sympathetic vasoconstrictor activity that caused the initial reduction in flow could be blocked by proximal nervous blockade, increasing the subcutaneous blood flow by 130, 63 and 14% on days 1, 3 and 7 respectively after coronary occlusion. A normal response to decrease in arterial perfusion pressure was observed, suggesting that intrinsic vascular reactions responsible for autoregulation of blood flow were not affected by the increase in sympathetic vasoconstrictor activity. The vasoconstrictor ...
The increase in total integrated voltage of renal sympathetic nerve activity that occurs with peripheral thermal receptor stimulation (heat) decreases renal blood flow, and the renal vasoconstriction is prevented by prior renal denervation (34). As it was this stimulus that identified a unique subset of single renal sympathetic nerve fibers, we sought to determine quantitative aspects of the renal sympathetic neural discharge seen in multifiber recordings that were produced by peripheral thermal receptor stimulation. Postganglionic multifiber renal sympathetic nerve activity occurs in synchronized sympathetic discharges (bursts, peaks) with distinct coupling to the cardiac cycle. These synchronized renal sympathetic peaks may be characterized by their amplitude, duration, and frequency. Total integrated voltage encompasses the product of voltage under the curve of each peak (governed largely by peak amplitude as peak duration changes little) and peak frequency. Therefore, changes in total ...
Because ANP has an inhibitory effect on sympathetic nerve activity (14), we hypothesized that the indexes of sympathetic nerve activity were different during infusion periods between the two groups. However, there was no difference of plasma norepinephrine or heart rates, which was probably because of the relatively small dose of ANP or GTN and the slight reduction of the mean arterial blood pressure in this study.. In our study, the plasma levels of ALD, Ang II and ET-1 were significantly suppressed in the ANP group compared with the GTN group. Especially, the plasma ALD level was significantly decreased after 1 h and suppressed during the infusion of ANP. Aldosterone levels have been found to be increased in patients with AMI, and aldosterone shows both myocardial and renal effects that may have profound implications for LV remodeling (15,16). We recently reported that plasma ALD is extracted through the heart in patients with heart failure, and that a positive correlation exists between the ...
The effects of a stressful environmental stimulus (air stress) on mean arterial pressure, heart rate, renal sympathetic nerve activity, and renal function were studied in conscious deoxycorticosterone acetate-sodium chloride (DOCA-NaCl) hypertensive rats, sham DOCA-NaCl normotensive rats, and DOCA-NaCl rats with renal denervation. In conscious DOCA-NaCl hypertensive rats, air stress decreased urine flow rate [36% from 17.9 +/- 3.0 microliter X min-1 X 100 g body wt-1 (BW)], urinary sodium excretion (39% from 3.1 +/- 0.5 microeq X min-1 X 100 g BW-1), fractional water excretion (24% from 4.72 +/- 1.00%), and fractional sodium excretion (28% from 5.72 +/- 1.08%) and increased renal sympathetic nerve activity (94% from 8.3 +/- 0.6 integrator resets/min), but no changes occurred in glomerular filtration rate (-15% from 0.40 +/- 0.06 ml X min-1 X 100 g BW-1) or effective renal plasma flow (-7% from 2.50 +/- 0.53 ml X min-1 X 100 g BW-1). Air stress had no effect on these measures in conscious sham ...
The important demonstration here is that the efficiency of fat deposition, and not total body fat or elevated circulating FFAs, is the primary predictor of plasma insulin and insulin-to-glucose ratio after the glucose load. Because (as discussed above) the higher energetic efficiencies (hence the rate) of fat deposition in RF groups is the result of suppressed thermogenesis, the implication of these findings is that the suppression of thermogenesis favoring catch-up fat, rather than total body fat or elevated circulating FFAs, is the prime early determinant of the hyperinsulinemic and insulin-resistant state of catch-up growth.. The other neurohormonal systems that are implicated in the regulation of catch-up fat are still unclear. A role for diminished sympathetic nervous system activity in the suppression of thermogenesis during refeeding is, however, unlikely. This is because the well-known reduction in sympathetic nervous system activity during starvation is rapidly restored to fed levels ...

Objective: To investigate the causes of Peripheral Sympathetic Nerve Dysfunction in girls immunized with the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.
BACKGROUND: The adipose afferent reflex (AAR), a sympatho-excitatory reflex, can promote the elevation of sympathetic nerve activity (SNA) and blood pressure (BP). Inflammation in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) involves sympathetic abnormality in some cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension. This study was designed to explore the effects of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) in the PVN on the AAR and SNA in rats with obesity-related hypertension (OH) induced by a high-fat diet for 12 weeks. METHODS: Renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) and mean arterial pressure (MAP) were continuously recorded in anesthetized rats, and their responses to capsaicin (CAP) stimulation of the right inguinal white adipose tissue were used to evaluate the AAR. RESULTS: Compared to the control rats, the systolic blood pressure (SBP), plasma norepinephrine (NE, indicating SNA) and TNFα levels, TNFα mRNA and protein levels, reactive oxygen species (ROS) content and NADPH oxidase activity in the PVN were ...

N2 - Heart failure is a complex clinical syndrome characterized by insufficient cardiac function. In addition to abnormalities intrinsic to the heart, dysfunction of other organs and dysregulation of systemic factors greatly affect the development and consequences of heart failure. Here we show that the heart and kidneys function cooperatively in generating an adaptive response to cardiac pressure overload. In mice subjected to pressure overload in the heart, sympathetic nerve activation led to activation of renal collecting-duct (CD) epithelial cells. Cell-cell interactions among activated CD cells, tissue ...
The primary novel finding of the present study is that sympathetic vasoconstrictor tone of the lower limb (i.e., leg) is augmented in old compared with young women. Specifically, young women exhibit no detectable sympathetic vasoconstriction in their leg vasculature at rest. Conversely, there appears to be robust vasoconstriction in the resting lower limbs of older women. Collectively, these findings suggest that with advanced age there is an emergence of a sympathetic neural influence on leg vascular tone in women. These conclusions are based on the observation that acute sympathetic inhibition via carotid artery baroreceptor loading increased femoral artery vascular conductance (FVC; Fig. 1) ~21% in old women, whereas FVC was unchanged in the younger women with the same intervention.. It is well established that muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) is augmented with age in women (Ng et al. 1993; Matsukawa et al. 1998; Moreau et al. 2003; Narkiewicz et al. 2005; Hart et al. 2011; Barnes ...

Heightened sympathetic excitation and diminished parasympathetic suppression of heart rate, cardiac contractility and vascular tone are all associated with cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension and ischemic heart disease. This phenotype often exists before these disease states have been established and is a strong correlate of mortality in the population. However, the causal role of the autonomic phenotype in the development and maintenance of hypertension and myocardial ischemia remains a subject of debate, as are the mechanisms responsible for regulating sympathovagal balance. Emerging evidence suggests oxidative stress and reactive oxygen species (such as nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide) play important roles in the modulation of autonomic balance, but so far the most important sites of action of these ubiquitous signaling molecules are unclear. In many cases, these mediators have opposing effects in separate tissues rendering conventional pharmacological approaches non-efficacious. Novel
A part of our nervous system called the autonomic nervous system is devoted to automatic reactions or involuntary things like breathing, sweating, and sleeping. Within the autonomic nervous system, there are two opposing sub-systems that work together: sympathetic and parasympathetic. The sympathetic nervous system has many roles, one of which is kicking us into gear when our brain perceives something dangerous or stressful. A series of chemical reactions occur, which prepare the body for action. Involuntary reactions occur including increased blood pressure and heart rate, dilated pupils and increased energy. This reaction is commonly referred to as the fight or flight response. The response is the body s way of preparing for an effective and immediate response.. ...

A preparation was devised in which the sympathetic vasoconstrictor response in the dog kidney perfused in vivo at constant blood flow could be elicited and measured, and the accompanying release of transmitter into the venous effluent could be quantitated. An i.a. infusion of angiotensin II amide resulted in potentiation of the response to sympathetic stimulation at a low frequency (2 cps) and an increased release of catecholamine elicited during stimulation at a higher frequency (5 cps). The vasoconstrictor response to sympathetic stimulation was increased to a much greater degree than the vasoconstrictor response to i.a. administered norepinephnine (1 µg). Cocaine, when infused i.a., potentiated the responses to both sympathetic stimulation and norepinephrine, the latter to a somewhat greater degree. Release of catecholamine during stimulation at the higher frequency also was increased after cocaine. The difference in the relative degree of potentiation of the response to endogenously ...
Enhanced sympathetic activity at the ventricular myocardium can destabilize repolarization, increasing the risk of death. Sympathetic activity is known to cluster in low-frequency bursts; therefore, we hypothesized that sympathetic activity induces periodic low-frequency changes of repolarization. We developed a technique to assess the sympathetic effect on repolarization and identified periodic components in the low-frequency spectral range (≤0.1 Hz), which we termed periodic repolarization dynamics (PRD). ...

As a prototypical member of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) superfamily, β-adrenergic receptor (βAR) plays a central role in sympathetic regulation of cardiac function.1,2 Stimulation of βAR by catecholamines induces robust chronotropic, inotropic, and relaxant effects via the Gs-adenylate cyclase-cAMP-protein kinase A (PKA) pathway.3,4 This signaling pathway is also thought to be responsible for other functions of βAR, such as regulation of metabolism, gene expression, cell growth, and apoptosis.2 However, sustained βAR activation under pathological conditions such as hypertension and congestive heart failure will result in downregulation and desensitization of βAR attributable to the negative feedback of this pathway.5-7. Recent studies have revealed unanticipated complexity of βAR signal transduction. For β2AR subtype stimulation in the heart, a parallel activation of Gi protein counterbalances Gs-mediated contractile response. Whereas β1AR stimulated contractile response is ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Role of paraventricular nucleus (PVH) in baroreflex-mediated changes in lumbar sympathetic nerve activity and heart rate. AU - Patel, K. P.. AU - Schmid, P. G.. PY - 1988/4. Y1 - 1988/4. N2 - Electrophysiological and neuronanatomical studies indicate that reciprocal connections between the paraventricular nucleus (PVH) and medullary sites are involved in cardiovascular regulation. To determine whether the PVH is involved in the regulation of baroreflex responses, lumbar sympathetic nerve activity (LSNA) and heart rate (HR) changes were recorded in response to increases in arterial pressure (produced by bolus doses of phenylephrine i.v.) prior to, during, and 60 min following the injection of lidocaine (2% lidocaine, 200 nl) bilaterally in the PVH of chloralose-anesthetized rabbits. Baseline blood pressure, HR, and LSNA did not change in response to the administration of lidocaine in the PVH. The magnitude of baroreflex responses in HR and LSNA were expressed as the ratios of ...
In this study, we propose a new technique which detects the anomalies in skin sympathetic nerve activity (SKNA) recorded from the chest wall by using the state-of-the-art signal processing and machine learning methods for the robust detection of myocardial ischaemia (AMI). For this purpose, a preprocessing technique that obtains SKNA from the wideband recordings on STAFF III database, which are non-invasively recorded from the skin surface of the chest wall by using an equipment that has a wide frequency bandwidth and high sampling rate, is developed. By using the data that is obtained as a result of preprocessing, a novel feature extraction technique which obtains SKNA features that are critical for the reliable detection of AMI is developed. By using the critical SKNA features, a supervised learning technique based on artificial neural networks (ANN) which performs the robust detection of AMI is developed. The performance results of the proposed technique obtained from a considerable number of ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The Influence of Sympathetic Nerves on Transcutaneous Oxygen Tension in Normal and Ischemic Lower Extremities. AU - Rooke, Thom W.. AU - Hollier, Larry H.. AU - Osmundson, Philip J.. PY - 1987/5. Y1 - 1987/5. N2 - The authors evaluated the relationship between sympathetic nerve activity and transcutaneous oxygen tension (TcpO2) in normal and ischemic lower extremities. Dorsal foot TcpO2 was measured by using oxygen-sensing electrodes with surface temperatures of 42 ° C and 45°C; in theory, changes in sympathetic activity should affect vasomotor tone and TcpO2 in skin beneath an electrode at 42 °C (submaximal vasodilation), but not at 45°C (maximal vasodilation). The vasodilation index (TcpO2 at 42°C/TcpO2 at 45°C) was created as an index of vasomotor tone (vasodilation index increases as tone decreases). In normal limbs (n=24) averages for TcpO2 at 42°C, TcpO2 at 45°C, and vasodilation index were 30.3 mmHg, 62.1 mmHg, and 0.47, respectively. In subjects (n=5) with ...
The profound reduction in heart rate variability (HRV) that occurs during exercise is thought to be, at least in part, the result of sympathetic nervous system activation. Moxonidine is a centrally acting anti-sympathetic drug, which suppresses sympathetic nervous system outflow by stimulation of central imidazoline receptors located in the rostral ventro-lateral medulla. This study was designed to investigate the combined effects of central sympathetic inhibition with moxonidine and steady-state dynamic exercise on HRV. Ten normal males participated in a double-blind cross-over study, taking either placebo or 0·4 mg of moxonidine. The subjects were studied at rest and during steady-state exercise. HRV was measured considering both time and frequency domain parameters. As a non-linear measure, the Poincaré scatter-plot was measured and analysed quantitatively. Ventilation and gas exchange were also measured during exercise. In addition, plasma catecholamines were measured at rest and during ...

N2 - The antihypertensive influence of fish oil is controversial, and the mechanisms remain unclear. Because the inverse relation between fish oil and hypertension appears to be partially dependent on the degree of hypertension, we tested the hypothesis that fish oil would elicit more dramatic reductions in mean arterial pressure (MAP) and muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) in prehypertensive (PHT) compared with normotensive (NT) subjects. Resting MAP, MSNA, and heart rate (HR) were examined before and after 8 wk of fish oil (9 g/day; 1.6 g eicosapentaenoic acid and 1.1 g docosahexaenoic acid) or placebo (olive oil; 9 g/day) in 38 NT (19 fish oil; 19 placebo) and 29 PHT (15 fish oil; 14 placebo) volunteers. Fish oil did not alter resting MAP, MSNA, or HR in either NT (80 ± 1 to 80± 1 mmHg; 11 ± 2 ...
This can temporarily relieve symptoms, and sometimes relieve them long term. A sympathetic nerve block involves injecting this material around the sympathetic nerves.. If the initial block is successful in relieving pain for longer than the duration of the local anaesthetic (which generally helps for only a few hours), then additional blocks may be repeated in 7 -14 days, and again later if there is some success.. Sympathetic nerve blocks are designed to produce temporary or permanent interruption of activity in the sympathetic nervous system, particularly the efferent sympathetic pathways (efferent nerves transmit information from the central nervous system out to the muscles or glands). In some cases, blocks can temporarily or permanently interrupt activity of the accompanying afferent nerves (the nerves that carry information from the nerve receptors into the brain or spinal cord).. Alteration in sympathetic nervous system activity can be associated with, or be a cause of pain. Its often ...
Dr. Knights research program aims to investigate biological risk and interventions - both pharmacologic and behavioral - for social health disparities in cancer, specifically among hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HCT) and cellular therapy recipients. Our lab does this by investigating how variations in immune function based on socioeconomic status (SES) - among other social health variables including depression, stress, sleep quality, and anxiety - contribute to differential patient responses and outcomes following HCT and cellular therapy. Reciprocally, we also investigate how these cancer therapies affect central nervous system function.. To accomplish these goals, we study biobehavioral mechanisms of cancer progression. Candidate mechanisms include the conserved transcriptional response to adversity (CTRA) transcriptome profile and associated molecular changes, inflammation, sympathetic nervous system activation, neurotoxic metabolites, and the endocannabinoid system, among others. These ...
In the present study, we attempted to unravel the physiological implications of circadian oscillators in response to sympathetic nervous system activation in osteoblasts. Our results suggest that β-AR signaling increases the expression of Nfil3 and, consequently, its binding to the Ptgs2 promoter, which in turn inhibits Ptgs2 expression in osteoblasts (supplementary material Fig. S2).. Recent studies conducted in our laboratory have shown that treatments with Iso or Dex induce circadian expression of the clock genes Per1, Per2, Per3 and Bmal1 in human osteoblasts. On the one hand, Iso induced oscillations in the osteoblast-related gene Col1a1, but not in ALP or osteocalcin (Komoto et al., 2012). On the other hand, we did not observe any significant effects of Iso in osteoclasts, which indicates that Dex rather than Iso signaling governs the transcriptional rhythmicity of the molecular clock in osteoclasts (Fujihara et al., 2014). These findings suggest that the Iso-mediated effects on Per2 ...
To verify response mechanisms and the feasibility of clinical models of pain research, the effect of laser phototherapy on neurophysiological pain mechanisms needs to be determined first in the absence of pathology. A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, repeated measures study was undertaken to investigate the possible involvement of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) following laser irradiation. Nineteen healthy subjects participated in a study that consisted of 5 treatments to the right posterior neck region at a dose of 4.0 J/cm2, using 820 nm laser. Each subject received active laser, placebo laser and a control condition over a three-day period, with a minimum of one day between sessions. Heart rate, blood pressure, bilateral skin temperature and skin conductance were measured distally. Results indicated that there was no alteration in sympathetic outflow, with no change in any of the outcome variables. It was concluded that in the laser phototherapy strategy used in this study, ...
It has been shown that sustained insulin infusion causes an increase in sympathetic vasoconstrictor discharge but, despite this, also causes peripheral vasodilatation. The present study was designed to determine in healthy subjects the effect of ingestion of a carbohydrate meal, with its attendant physiological insulinaemia, on vascular resistance in and sympathetic vasoconstrictor discharge to the same vascular bed, and the relationship between these parameters. Fifteen healthy subjects were studied for 2 h following ingestion of a carbohydrate meal. Calf vascular resistance was measured by venous occlusion plethysmography, and muscle sympathetic nerve activity was assessed by peroneal microneurography. Five of the subjects also ingested water on a separate occasion, as a control. Following the carbohydrate meal, the serum insulin concentration increased to 588+/-72 pmol/l. This was associated with a 47% increase in skeletal muscle blood flow (P|0.001), a 39% fall in vascular resistance (P|0.001) and a

Activation of the sympathetic nervous system, manifested by an increase in plasma norepinephrine (NE), is a salient feature in congestive heart failure (HF). This was first thought to be an important adaptive mechanism to support the failing myocardium (1). However, evidence now indicates that activation of the sympathetic nervous system is detrimental and maladaptive. Long-term exposure of the heart to NE can cause not only myocardial β-adrenoceptor down-regulation but also cardiac hypertrophy, ischemia, cardiac arrhythmia, tissue necrosis, and myocyte apoptosis, all of which have been shown in patients with congestive HF (2). This concept is further supported by several large clinical trials showing that long-term β-blocker therapy can not only improve left ventricular (LV) systolic function but also increase survival in patients with chronic HF secondary to LV systolic dysfunction (3-5).. Given the overwhelming success of the β-adrenoceptor blocker therapy, several investigators have ...
Continuous recording of mean cerebral blood flow velocity (MCBFV) by Doppler ultrasound allows detection of low-frequency (LF) oscillations, which reflect sympathetic activity in the cerebral circulation. To establish whether the sympathetic drive to the cerebral circulation is altered in patients with compensated cirrhosis, and, if so, where alterations take place, LF oscillations of MCBFV, heart rate (RR interval) and systolic arterial pressure (SAP) were analysed in 10 patients with cirrhosis and 10 control subjects during supine rest and on stimulation of carotid baroreceptors using a neck chamber applying sinusoidal suction. Bivariate analysis was used to study the relationship between pairs of oscillations. In the case of a significant association, the delay in the appearance of the oscillation in MCBFV, SAP and RR was calculated. Baroreceptor stimulation induced significant increases in SAP LF and RR LF power in both groups, while MCBFV LF power increased only in controls. During ...
2 Abstract Acute kidney injury (AKI) is frequently accompanied by activation of the sympathetic nervous system. This can be due to the presence of chronic diseases associated with sympathetic activation prior to AKI or induced by stressors that ultimately lead to AKI such as endotoxins and arterial hypotension in circulatory shock. Conversely, sympathetic activation may also result from acute renal injury. Focusing on studies in experimental renal ischemia and reperfusion (IR), this review summarizes the current knowledge on how the sympathetic nervous system is activated in IR‐induced AKI and on the consequences of sympathetic activation for the development of acute renal damage. Experimental studies show beneficial effects of sympathoinhibitory interventions on renal structure and function in response to IR. However, few clinical trials obtained in scenarios that correspond to experimental IR, namely major elective surgery, showed that perioperative treatment with centrally acting ...
Powell et al. defined short- and long-term time domains in the respiratory response to both single and repetitive hypoxic exposures [1]. Aspects of these time domains reflect a neural plasticity in the network generating the respiratory pattern and are evident in both the timing and amplitude of the cycle. Studies from our laboratory have focused on the plasticity evoked by hypoxia, in particular, the role of the lateral pons in modulating the cycles timing [2,3]. Because of respiratory modulation of sympathetic nerve activity (SNA), we hypothesized that comparable time domains are also evident in SNAs response to hypoxia and that the lateral pons also modulates plasticity in SNA.. We recorded phrenic nerve activity (PNA) and splanchnic SNA in anesthetized (Equithesin), paralyzed, vagotomized, thoracotomized, adult male rats (Sprague-Dawley, Zivic Miller). We generated cycle-triggered averages of PNA and sSNA before, during and after hypoxic exposures (8% O2/92% N2, 45 s duration). In a ...

The influence of i.a. infusions of equivalent doses of prostaglandins (PG) E1, E2, F1α and F2α on vasoconstrictor responses to norepinephrine and sympathetic nerve stimulation were evaluated in the dog hindpaw perfused at constant flow. Infusions of PGE1 and PGE2,1 µg/min, decreased vascular resistance in the hindpaw. PGE1 markedly reduced responses to i.a. norepinephrine, angiotensin and sympathetic nerve stimulation whereas PGE2 did not alter these responses. However, when the infusion rate was increased to 2 µg/min, responses to nerve stimulation, but not norepinephrine, were enhanced. Infusion of PGF1α, and PGF2α, 1 µg/min, caused no change in vancular resistance in the hindpaw but enhanced the response to sympathetic nerve stimulation. PGF1α, decreased the response to norepinephrine whereas PGF2α, was without effect. These results suggest that PGF2α may enhance adrenergic transmission in the hindpaw by facilitating the release of transmitter from sympathetic nerve endings and that ...
Whats the difference between Parasympathetic nervous system and Sympathetic nervous system?

Disturbed shear rate (SR), characterized by increased retrograde and oscillatory SR in the brachial artery, is associated with inflammation, atherosclerosis, endothelial dysfunction, and sympathetic hyperactivity. Young subjects do not have disturbed SR; however, elderly subjects do, which seems to be associated with sympathetic hyperactivity. Anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) abuse in young is associated with increased muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA). We hypothesized that AAS users might have disturbed SR. We tested the association between retrograde and oscillatory SR with MSNA. In addition, we measured the high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP). We evaluated 10 male AAS users, age 27 ± 4 years, and 10 age-matched AAS nonusers, age 29 ± 5 years. At rest, retrograde and oscillatory SR were evaluated by Doppler ultrasound, MSNA was measured with microneurography, and hs-CRP was measured in blood sample. Flow-mediated dilation (FMD) was also assessed. AAS users had higher ...
The arterial baroreflexs (ABR) operating point (OP) pressure is reset upwards and rightwards from rest in direct relation to the increases in dynamic exercise intensity. However the interneural pathways and signaling mechanisms that lead to upwards and rightwards resetting of the OP pressure, and hence the increases in central sympathetic outflow during exercise, remain to be identified. Data from recent animal investigations have implicated nitric oxide (NO) as a modulator of central sympathetic outflow. For example, introduction of NO centrally dampens sympathetic outflow and there is a growing body of evidence that indicates that central NO is scavenged by centrally generated free radicals (FR), thereby, enabling increased central sympathetic outflow. Furthermore, during dynamic exercise, increases in centrally generated FRs formed by increased intensity-related oxidative metabolism and central angiotensin II (Ang II) production linked to exercise intensity related FR production suggests that FRs
We tested whether mild adiposity alters responsiveness of the kidney to activation of the renal sympathetic nerves. After rabbits were fed a high-fat or control diet for 9 wk, responses to reflex activation of renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) with hypoxia and electrical stimulation of the renal nerves (RNS) were examined under pentobarbital anesthesia. Fat pad mass and body weight were, respectively, 74% and 6% greater in fat-fed rabbits than controls. RNS produced frequency-dependent reductions in renal blood flow, cortical and medullary perfusion, glomerular filtration rate, urine flow, and sodium excretion and increased renal plasma renin activity (PRA) overflow. Responses of sodium excretion and medullary perfusion were significantly enhanced by fat feeding. For example, 1 Hz RNS reduced sodium excretion by 79 ± 4% in fat-fed rabbits and 46 ± 13% in controls. RNS (2 Hz) reduced medullary perfusion by 38 ± 11% in fat-fed rabbits and 9 ± 4% in controls. Hypoxia doubled RSNA, ...
We observed earlier that central alpha-2 adrenoceptor stimulation in mice greatly augments parasympathetic tone. To test the effects in humans, we assessed autonomic vasomotor tone and baroreflex regulation in 9 normal young adults on 2 occasions, on
Obesity contributes to high blood pressure, but why and how this happens remains unclear. One of the major causes of high blood pressure-or hypertension-is the inappropriate activation of the fight-or-flight sympathetic nervous system response, and most obesity researchers have focused on factors that increase sympathetic activity. Virginia Brooks, Ph.D., however, has been investigating mechanisms that inhibit this activity. A team led by Brooks, professor of physiology and pharmacology at OHSU, identified a neuromodulator, neuropeptide Y (NPY), that inhibits sympathetic activity in a specific area of … Read More. ...
sympathetic nervous system The thoracolumbar division of the autonomic nervous system.. Preganglionic fibres originate in the thoracic and lumbar sections of the spinal cord and synapse with postganglionic nerve cells in the sympathetic ganglia. Most of these ganglia are in two ironss sidelong to the anchor, and others are within the bole ; postganglionic fibres extend to the variety meats innervated. Some effects of sympathetic stimulation are increased bosom rate, dilation of the bronchioles, dilation of the students, vasoconstriction in the tegument and entrails, vasodilation in the skeletal musculuss, decelerating of vermiculation, transition of animal starch to glucose by the liver, and secernment of adrenaline and noradrenaline by the adrenal myelin.

Central mechanisms involving aldosterone - mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) activation mediate the increase in sympathetic tone after myocardial infarction (MI). We hypothesized that an increase in cardiac sympathetic activity (CSA) post MI facilitates cardiac sympathetic axonal sprouting, and that central MR blockade attenuates CSA and reduces cardiac sympathetic hyperinnervation post MI. Western blotting and qRT-PCR were used to assess protein and gene expression, and fluorescent immunohistochemistry was used to study changes in sympathetic innervation. Tyrosine hydroxylase ...
The answer is no- there is not an adrenaline response to exercise. The adrenaline response is also known as the fight or flight response, and it is activated by the amydala, which is part of the limbic system of the brain. The amygdala senses fear, anxiety, and stressors. When the amygdala is triggered by anxiety and stressors, it in turn activates the sympathetic nervous system via the locus coeruleus, and also activates the HPA axis (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis). The sympathetic nervous system then triggers various body organs, such as the heart, and it increases the heart beat and contraction. The sympathetic nervous system also activates the adrenal medulla, and it subsequently releases epinephrine (adrenaline) into the bloodstream, acting as a circulating hormone in the bloodstream and further adding to the sympathetic nervous system response of increasing heart rate, widening the bronchioles in the lungs, increased sweating, increased muscle tension, and blood shunting from the ...
The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) constitute the autonomic nervous system; acting together, they maintain homeostatic balance. The postganglionic component of the SNS, a relatively simple model used to study development of the nervous system in mammals, develops independently of other neuronal lineages, with the neurons being predominantly noradrenergic. All neurons and glia of the SNS develop from the neural crest (NC) lineage. The trunk NC cells form at the dorsal aspect of the neural fold and migrate through the ventromedial somitic sclerotome to the dorsal aorta and major blood vessels. Once the NC cells reach the dorsal aorta, they receive an inductive cue, thought to be BMPs, to activate the SNS-specific differentiation program (Reissmann et al., 1996). The dorsal aorta expresses Bmp2, Bmp4 and Bmp7, and all have been shown to activate the SNS developmental program in vitro (Reissmann et al., 1996; Shah et al., 1996; Varley and Maxwell, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Vascular effects of deletion of melanocortin-4 receptors in rats. AU - Stepp, David W.. AU - Osakwe, Christabell C.. AU - de Chantemele, Eric J.Belin. AU - Mintz, James D.. PY - 2013/1/1. Y1 - 2013/1/1. N2 - Obesity is a major cause of hypertension, but links between the obese and hypertensive states remain incompletely understood. A major component of cardiovascular function in obese individuals is a state of sympathoactivation. A postulated mechanism of this sympathoactivation is the activation of specific classes of neurons commonly associated with metabolic control, which also affect sympathetic outflow to cardiovascular targets. One class of neurons is characterized by expression of melanocortin-4 receptors (MC4R) which are activated by metabolic signals such as leptin and insulin. In this study, we examined the effects of deletion of MC4R in a novel rat model. MC4R knockout (KO) rats are obese and profoundly insulin resistant without frank diabetes. Despite these ...
Pain changes the way you move - literally changing motor patterns in the brain. Activation of type IV mechanoreceptors AKA nociceptors causes reflex muscle spasms of the injured/painful area. This leads to decreased motion and altered motor patterns. The opposite goal of what we are shooting for in OS. Increased Nociception also leads to sympathetic nervous system activity which leads to sympathetic mediate muscle spasm which decreases blood flow to working muscles which decreases oxygen and nutrient transport in and waste transport out of the muscles. Increased sympathetic activity also means increase cortisol levels and increased cortisol levels inhibit neuroplastic changes in the motor cortex which means your RESETS are less effective at resetting and wiring in better movement patterns. Also, remember pain is a cortical response to nociception (ie emotional response) that has reached a threshold and one is now consciously aware of, nociception is actual tissue damage/stress that is injurious. ...
