Transections in the brainstem of the rat just lateral to the nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS) caused severe hypertension. The results of this study suggest that the fibres involved are entering the NTS laterally and that deafferentation of the cells of this nucleus results in hypertension by removing an inhibitory central control.
