    ..This further supports our hypothesis that increases in RSNA can selectively control pre- and postglomerular vascular resistance and therefore glomerular ultrafiltration. ..

    ..Together, these findings indicate that vagal efferent neurons in the rat neither synapse with splenic sympathetic neurons nor drive their ongoing activity. ..

    ..6. The MPFC and CnF are supramedullary structures with opposing modulatory influences on sympathetic vasomotor drive, whose roles in cardiovascular control mechanisms warrant further investigation. ..
  7. Caswell M, Mok S, Henry A, Cappai R, Klug G, Beyreuther K, et al. The amyloid beta-protein precursor of Alzheimer's disease is degraded extracellularly by a Kunitz protease inhibitor domain-sensitive trypsin-like serine protease in cultures of chick sympathetic neurons. Eur J Biochem. 1999;266:509-16 pubmed
    ..These results suggest that KPI forms of APP regulate extracellular cleavage of secreted APP by inhibiting the activity of a secreted APP-degrading protease. ..
  8. McAllen R, Trevaks D, Allen A. Analysis of firing correlations between sympathetic premotor neuron pairs in anesthetized cats. J Neurophysiol. 2001;85:1697-708 pubmed
    ..If synchronizing sources such as neuronal oscillators were responsible for more than a minor part of the drive, they would be multiple, dispersed, and weak...
  9. Bramich N, Cousins H, Edwards F, Hirst G. Parallel metabotropic pathways in the heart of the toad, Bufo marinus. Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol. 2001;281:H1771-7 pubmed
    ..These results suggest that in the toad sinus venosus, two distinct transduction pathways can be activated by epinephrine to cause an increase in heart rate...

    ..We suggest that measurements of transcranial plasma noradrenaline spillover have utility as a method for assessing the sympathetic nerve activity of the cerebral vasculature. ..
