Abstract : Studies concerning cardiovascular and gastrointestinal function and their autonomic nervous control are reported. They include quantitative measurements of blood viscosity in vivo in comparison with the usual in vitro estimations, of vascular smooth muscle and of the transmitter release at adrenergic nerve endings; regional circulation in skeletal muscle and in adipose tissue of motility control and circulation in the G.-1 tract; reflex and central nervous control. Further, some pathophysiological problems, particularly the importance of adaptive structural changes of the resistance vessels in hypertension are deal with. The main topic has been devoted to the various aspects of autonomic nervous control mechanisms and to some hypertensive disease. (Author)
