Abstract

Muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) is an important variable in the study of autonomic activity in both normotensive and hypertensive subjects. It is measured directly from the peroneal nerve using microneurography. Thetechnique is complex and difficult to learn, bur yields accurate and direct information about sympathetic nerve impulses. MSNA provides not only greater reproducibility than other measures of sympathetic activity, but also aclearer and more consistent reflection of changes in sympathetic activity caused by changes in the subject's status or disease. This technique has been used primarily in basic research settings studying stress and hypertension. It has much potential to enhance our understanding of sympathetic nervous system activity and its role in applied psychophysiology and biofeedback.
