Abstract

Summary In cats monolateral and bilateral stimulation of the cervical sympathetic trunks causes a reduction of the cerebrospinal fluid-pressure, the responses being evident also within the range of physiological frequencies. Neither cocaine nor guanethidine and nicergoline, an alpha-receptor blocking agent, influenced the responses to nerve stimulation at doses which per se did not markedly change CSF-pressure or systemic blood pressure.
