Rats were tail-suspended to simulate microgravity and then studied for changes in arterial vasculature. Parameters investigated included vascular responsiveness at different areas of the body, morphological changes in arteries and vascular endothelium tissue, and the distribution of adrenergic nerve fibers supplying cerebral arteries and arterial vessels. The significance of the results and future research directions are discussed.
