Baroreceptors

 

 Baroreceptors are receptors in the arterial tree which assist in reduction and increase in peripheral blood pressure. They are found in carotid sinus and in arch of aorta and other areas of the vascular tree.

They send their signals through Herring's nerve (carotid sinus nerve) into the glossopharyngeal nerve from the carotid sinus and to the vagus nerve in the aortic arch. Both reach the tractus solitarius where they connect with the parasympathetic center in the medulla and from their influence the blood pressure in the peripheral circulation
