The arterial baroreflex (ABR) resets during exercise in an intensity-dependent manner to operate around a higher blood pressure with maintained sensitivity. This review provides a historical perspective of ABR resetting and the involvement of other neural reflexes in mediating exercise resetting. Furthermore, we discuss potential underlying signaling mechanisms that may contribute to exercise ABR resetting in physiological and pathophysiological conditions.
