n.
A reflex triggered by stimulation of a baroreceptor.

baroreflex

A vasomotor reflex which originates in the baroreceptors and responds to distension of the walls of great vessels of the head and neck to the commissural, dorsolateral and medial portions of the solitary tract nucleus of the brain stem.

The FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health approved the firm's submission after a thorough review of the clinical trial data from the Baroreflex Activation Therapy for Heart Failure (BeAT-HF) Pivotal Trial.
By modulating the brain RAS, Firibastat decreases vasopressin release, decreases sympathetic nerve activity and improves baroreflex. These effects lead to a vasodilatation and an increased diuresis, thereby decreasing blood pressure.
An additional system -- called the baroreflex -- helps correct if blood pressure gets too high, he added.

An example of a physiological mechanism for cardiovascular control is the baroreflex (7).
The feedback of blood pressure is mediated through the baroreflex, which transmits baroreceptor signals to the solitary nucleus and from there to the caudal ventrolateral medulla (CVLM) region and nucleus ambiguus.
This finding is supported by another study which concludes that gender differences are there in arterial baroreflex sensitivity and they observed that females may have a greater baroreflex sensitivity, in such a way that alterations in BP are more efficiently controlled compared to males.
Decreased angiotensin III means less release of vasopressin, reduced sympathetic nervous system activity, and increased baroreflex activity, all of which add up to lower blood pressure, Keith C.
In addition, Mg deficiency induced excessive catecholamine release and high sympathetic tone, which impaired baroreflex control of sympathetic nerves and reduced baroreflex-related oscillation, leading to a blunted baroreflex and enhanced heart rate response to stress (13).
LF-HF ratio that represents sympatho-vagal balance related to arterial baroreflex activity and cardiovascular stresses was also shown to be significantly elevated.
Later on, in 2009, the Caminiti (18) study found that long-acting testosterone therapies (undecanoate) had a plethora of positive outcomes in men with moderately severe CHF, including improved exercise capacity, muscle strength, glucose metabolism, and baroreflex sensitivity (BRS).
Also, another mechanism involved in hemodynamic improvement is baroreflex regulation, which after regular practice of physical exercise has its sensitivity increased due to a significant increase in the sensitivity of the aortic depressor nerve (28).
