Baroreflex control of heart rate in the broad-nosed caiman Caiman latirostris is temperature dependent
(Elsevier B.V., 2010-08-01)
It has been suggested that ectothermic vertebrates primarily control blood pressure to protect the pulmonary vasculature from oedema caused by high pressure, while endothermic vertebrates control blood pressure to maintain ...
Espécies reativas de oxigênio no controle neurovegetativo da pressão arterial
The control of the blood pressure depends on the activity of select groups of neurons present in the central nervous system. Evidence has demonstrated that the redox state (a balance between oxidizing and reducing species) ...
SPRINKMOD - Simulation of pressure and discharge distributions in pressurized irrigation systems: graphical interface and strategy of design.
(In: INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTERS IN AGRICULTURE, 7., 1998, Orlando. Proceedings... St. Joseph: ASAE, 1998. p. 167-175., 1998)
O óxido nítrico (NO) no controle neural da pressão arterial: Modulação da transmissão glutamatérgica no NTS
The neuromodulatory effect of nitric oxide (NO) on glutamatergic transmission within the NTS related to cardiovascular regulation has been widely investigated. Activation of glutamatergic receptors in the NTS stimulates ...
Growth regulators for in vitro propagation of Tillandsia gardneri (Bromeliaceae)
Tillandsia gardneri Lindi, is a herbaceous perennial with ornamental value. However, in Brazil there is no report about this species' cultivation on a commercial scale. The low multiplication rate of T. gardneri (in average ...
Importância da região anteroventral do terceiro ventrículo (AV3V) no controle cardiovascular e do equilíbrio hidroeletrolítico
The maintenance of the arterial pressure in normal levels is important for the homeostasis of body fluids. The central nervous system regulating sympathetic and parasympathetic autonomic efferent can adjust arterial pressure ...
Functional evidence that the central renin-angiotensin system plays a role in the pressor response induced by central injection of carbachol
We investigated the effects of losartan, an AT 1-receptor blocker, and ramipril, a converting enzyme inhibitor, on the pressor response induced by angiotensin II (ANG II) and carbachol (a cholinergic receptor agonist). ...
Speech resonance after septoplasty in a patient with bilateral cleft lip and palate
(Universidade de São Paulo, Hospital de Reabilitação de Anomalias CraniofaciaisBauru, 2013-11-08)
Purpose: The nasal airway is an important regulator of the pressures generated in speech when velopharyngeal function is altered. Patients with cleft palate often have nasal obstruction and increased nasal resistance, which ...
