Electroacupuncture Improves Baroreflex and γ-Aminobutyric Acid Type B Receptor-Mediated Responses in the Nucleus Tractus Solitarii of Hypertensive Rats

Figure 2

Long-term EA treatment restores the baroreflex response in 2K1C hypertensive rats. (a) Grouped heart rate (HR) baroreflex response to each 10 mmHg change in mean arterial pressure (MAP) elicited by phenylephrine. (b) Grouped heart rate (HR) baroreflex response to each 10 mmHg change in mean arterial pressure (MAP) evoked by sodium nitroprusside. (c–e) Spontaneous baroreflex analysis with overall baroreflex gain (combination of up and down sequences), up sequence gain, and down sequence gain (in ms/mmHg). Data are presented as mean ± SE; rats; vs. the sham group; vs. the 2K1C group.
