Peter - perhaps my wording wasn't entirely correct on that one.

I did not mean by experiment, as such, but rather as common medical knowledge : in the same way that your heart is known to be a part of the circulatory system, or that gaseous exchnage occurs at the alveoli in the lungs, it isknown that the carotid sinus regulates blood pressure (this may be an over simplification given to me by the doctors I asked about this).

If you are interested, I suggest you look in Grant's Atlas of the Human body - the medical textbook used by doctors in university.
