Mechanoreceptors and regulation of heart rate.

Post by steduval1985 » Sun Oct 16, 2005 2:23 pm

I've looked all over the internet but found nothing relevant to what I want to know. So can someone help please?

What do mechanoreceptors do in terms of heart rate regulation during rest & exercise?

I am guessing that they are stimulated by muscle contraction and produce hypertension and acceleration of heart rate. Just a guess, though

There are baroreceptors in heart,aorta,carotid sinus,vena cava,pulmonary veins,…
They react on stretching of blood vessels and lower blood pressure. :?

Oh yes, completely forgot that baroreceptors are mecanoreceptors
