Activation of cardiopulmonary receptors with vagal afferents results predominantly in reflex inhibition of efferent sympathetic activity, whereas activation of somatic receptors reflexly increases sympathetic activity to the heart and circulation. Previous studies in experimental animals indicate that there is an important interaction between these excitatory and inhibitory reflexes in the control of the renal circulation.
