|Abstract:||In pentobarbital anesthetized rats, unilateral microinjection (500 ng) of the selective perikaryal excitotoxin, kainic acid, into the nucleus ambiguus promoted a significant suppression of arterial pressure, heart rate and cardiac contractility. The degree of such cardiovascular depression followed the order of heart contractility reduction (50.7%) > hypotension (28.9%) > bradycardia (20.8%) at the end of a 60-min postinjection period. We concluded that the nucleus ambiguus may exert its control on cardiac activities by both negative chronotropic and inotropic effects on the heart.|
