Figure 6

Microinjection sites of E2β and DPN in the RVLM. Diagrammatic representations of two rostral-caudal levels of the RVLM (dotted line areas) with reference to the lambda illustrating the location of sites where bilateral microinjection of E2β (, 1 pmol) and DPN (, 2 pmol) elicited significant inhibitory or minimal effects (■, non-RVLM microinjection sites) on the MSAP and power density of vasomotor components of SAP spectrum. Numbers on right side indicate distance from the lambda. For the purpose of clarity, approximately 10 % of the total microinjection sites are included and are presented on both side of the diagram. ION, inferior olivary nucleus; NA, nucleus ambiguous; NTS, nucleus tractus solitarii; RVLM, rostral ventrolateral medulla; V, nucleus of the spinal trigeminal nerve; py, pyramidal tract.
