Cerebral Hyperemia and Breakthrough During Hypertension

Cerebral blood flow is maintained relatively constant with variations of perfusion pressure. This autoregulatory function is adapted to higher levels of blood pressure in hypertensive humans and animals than in normotensives [1, 2]. The present study was designed to elucidate the effect of sympathetic denervation on the autoregulatory capacity in the cortex and thalamus during the development of hypertension.
