Stress-induced modulation of baroreflex sensitivity in spontaneously hypertensive rats: the role of renin-angiotensin system and glucocorticoids

The project aims a) to study molecular mechanisms of stress-induced cardiovascular response in SHR and WKY, b) to analyze stress effects on neuroendocrine systems in these rats, c) to study the effects of the pharmacological blockade of renin-angiotensin system or glucocorticoids on these changes.
