The breathing pattern and the ventilatory response to aquatic and aerial hypoxia and hypercarbia in the frog Pipa carvalhoi
(Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology A-molecular & Integrative Physiology, 2012-07-01) [Artigo]
Anuran amphibians are known to exhibit an intermittent pattern of pulmonary ventilation and to exhibit an increased ventilatory response to hypoxia and hypercarbia. However, only a few species have been studied to date. ...
Brain monoaminergic neurons and ventilatory control in vertebrates
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2008-12-10) [Artigo]
Monoamines (noradrenaline (NA), adrenaline (AD), dopamine (DA) and serotonin (5-HT) are key neurotransmitters that are implicated in multiple physiological and pathological brain mechanisms, including control of respiration. ...
Ionotropic glutamatergic receptors in the rostral medullary raphe modulate hypoxia and hypercapnia-induced hyperpnea
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2011-01-31) [Artigo]
It has been suggested that the medullary raphe (MR) plays a key role in the physiological responses to hypoxia and hypercapnia. We assessed the role of ionotropic glutamate receptors in the rostral MR (rMR) in the respiratory ...
