Role of central nitric oxide in behavioral thermoregulation of toads during hypoxia
(Physiology & Behavior, 2008-09-03) [Artigo]
Nitric oxide (NO) is thought to play a key role in the development of hypoxia-induced anapyrexia in mammals, acting on the preoptic region of the anterior hypothalamus to activate autonomic heat loss responses. Regarding ...
Locus coeruleus noradrenergic neurons and CO2 drive to breathing
(Pflugers Archiv: European Journal of Physiology, 2008-03-01) [Artigo]
The Locus coeruleus (LC) has been suggested as a CO2 chemoreceptor site in mammals. In the present study, we assessed the role of LC noradrenergic neurons in the cardiorespiratory and thermal responses to hypercapnia. To ...
