The rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) and the presympathetic bulbospinal neurons in this region play a critical role in cardiovascular regulation. However, there is ambiguity regarding the precise anatomical coordinates of the RVLM and much still needs to be learned regarding the regulation and neurochemistry of this region. This brief review discusses some of these issues and focuses on the role of angiotensin-mediated signaling in the RVLM in blood pressure regulation.
