Swimming exercise in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) changes the hemodynamic responses dependent on opioidergic pathways in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM)

      Background/Aims: Exercise training reduces sympathetic activity and arterial pressure in SHR by modifying medullary neurons that control cardiovascular responses. Opioidergic neurons in the RVLM are involved in cardiovascular regulation. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of swimming exercise on hemodynamic responses induced by opioidergic receptor blockade in RVLM of SHR.
