Loven reflex

a reaction in which a local dilation of vessels accompanies a general vasoconstriction; e.g., when the central end of an afferent nerve to an organ is suitably stimulated, its efferent vasomotor fibres remaining intact, a general rise in blood pressure occurs together with a dilation of the vessels of the organ.
