Autonomic control mechanisms

Autonomic control mechanisms (Wallin, Fagius): Studies in the early 70s in the department showed that the microneurographic technique could be used to record sympathetic activity in peripheral skin and muscle nerves in man. This gave new information of a number of vasomotor, blood pressure and temperature controlling mechanisms in normal subjects. Further studies have focused on the patophysiology in patients with vasomotor disturbances, e.g. hypertonia, hemicrania, Raynaud’s disease, Guillain-Barré syndrome, diabetic neuropathy and spinal cord lesions
