Abstract

Pressor reflexes evoked by muscle contraction following stimulation of the cut distal portions of the L7 and S1 ventral roots were the dorsolateral sulcus region of the T13-L1 spinal cord, indicatining that this area is not essential for mediation of these reflexes. Additional evidence suggested that the pathway responsible for the exercise pressor reflex located in the surviving spinal cord is most likely bilateral.
