Abstract

Response of the cerebral circulation to such systemic disturbances as hypoxia, hypercapnia, and changes in arterial perfusion pressure and to alterations in cerebral metabolic rate are the two main areas considered. The roles of H +, K +, and aminergic and peptidergic neurotransmitters and of the specialized nerve tracts serving the cerebral vessels are discussed. For physiologists, neurologists, neuroanatomists, neuropharmacologists, histochemists, and anesthetists. Subject index.
