Guanethidine exerts its effects at the postganglionic terminals of adrenergic neurons.
Further, the effect of norepinephrine (NE) spillover from renal adrenergic neurons on salt and water conservation outweighs its effect on renal haemodynamics under normal sympathetic tone.
Therefore, it can be suggested that renal adrenergic neurons play a considerable role in the control of GFR under basal sympathetic tone.
Sympathetic outflow to the skin includes cholinergic neurons innervating sweat glands and adrenergic neurons innervating blood vessels and hair follicles (vasoconstrictor and pilomotor neurons).
