“The exercise pressor reflex in health and simulated peripheral artery disease”

For the past thirty years Dr. Nelson’s research has focused on the neural mechanisms that control the circulation during exercise. He paid particular attention to one of these mechanisms, namely the exercise pressor reflex, which is evoked by metabolic and mechanical stimuli arising in exercising skeletal muscles and whose sensory arm is comprised of group III and IV afferents. Currently, his laboratory is investigating the exercise pressor reflex in rats whose hindlimb muscles are either freely perfused or have had their femoral arteries ligated. In both preparations, the focus is on determining the responses of the group III and IV afferents to contraction before and after activation and inactivation of EP4, TP, IP, purinergic 2X, and ASIC 3 receptors.
