abstract

  • Activation of the CF system increases BFcrb. The response depends on activation of glutamate receptors and is in large part mediated by NO via stimulation of soluble guanylyl cyclase. Glutamate receptors NO and cGMP are important factors in the mechanisms of functional hyperemia in cerebellar cortex.
