The renal nerves of the rabbit were stimulated to cause less than 5, 9 or 22% reduction in renal blood flow. Glomerular filtration rate was reduced by 0, 3 and 11% respectively when the renal nerves were stimulated at these increasing rates. At low and moderate rates of renal nerve stimulation absolute and fractional sodium excretions were reduced by between 17 and 22%, but at the highest rates they were reduced by 55 and 53% respectively. At increasing rates of renal nerve stimulation plasma renin activity was increased by 40, 70 and 180%.
