We aimed at studying the effects of melatonin on baroreflex sensitivity and the role of area postrema, as a component modulator of baroreflex arch. Melatonin produced a downward shift of baroreceptor reflex control, which was abolished in the area postrema-ablated group. We conclude that melatonin can modulate baroreceptor reflex via melatonin receptors in the area postrema.
