Exerc Sport Sci Rev. 2022 Oct 1;50(4):175-184. doi: 10.1249/JES.0000000000000299. Epub 2022 Jun 17.


This article describes the forebrain neurocircuitry associated with rapid heart rate response at the exercise onset with attention to ascending somatosensory information from the Type I and II afferents from the contracting muscle and potential influence of sensory information related to blood pressure and changes in heart rate.
