Résumé : Cutaneous vasomotor reflexes (CVR), the transient waves of cutaneous vasoconstriction after stimuli, such as a cough, were recorded from the digits of patients with unilateral frontoparietal lesions using a laser doppler flowmeter. Vasoconstriction was 6-15 times greater on the fingers contralateral to the lesions, an effect which was independant of the temperature differences between limbs. CVRs may be tonically inhibited under normal circumstances by control from the cerebral hemispheres.
