A phenotypically diverse population projects from the pressor region of the rostral ventrolateral medulla to its analogue in the contralateral brainstem. These neurons are spontaneously active, have a discharge correlated with sympathetic nerve activity, and form close appositions with sympathetic premotor neurons. These neurons may therefore represent a source of ongoing excitatory input to sympathetic premotor neurons.
