A colleague is examining the effects of neurotrophic factors (e.g. NGF)
on sypathetic innervation of cerebral arteries. Apparently, NGF causes
hyperinnervation of these arteries (very similar to a report by Isaacson
et al. Neurobiology of Aging, 11: 51). The question is, is
hyperinnervation of cerebral blood vessels associated with increased
cerebal blood flow? ANy comments would be appreciated. Apparently there
is not much literature on this topic.
