A colleague is examining the effects of neurotrophic factors (e.g. NGF) 
on sypathetic innervation of cerebral arteries.  Apparently, NGF causes 
hyperinnervation of these arteries (very similar to a report by Isaacson 
et al. Neurobiology of Aging, 11: 51).  The question is, is 
hyperinnervation of cerebral blood vessels associated with increased 
cerebal blood flow?  ANy comments would be appreciated.  Apparently there 
is not much literature on this topic.
