In healthy humans, ageing is typically associated with reduced skeletal muscle blood flow and vascular conductance during exercise. Further, there is a marked increase in resting sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activity with age, yet whether augmented SNS mediated α-adrenergic vasoconstriction contributes to the age-associated impairment in exercising muscle blood flow ...
