Role of A5 noradrenergic neurons in the chemoreflex control of respiratory and sympathetic activities in unanesthetized conditions
(Neuroscience, 2017-06-23) [Artigo]
The A5 area at the ventrolateral pons contains noradrenergic neurons connected with other medullary areas involved in the cardiorespiratory control. Its contribution to the cardiorespiratory regulation was previously ...
Influence of estrous cycle hormonal fluctuations and gonadal hormones on the ventilatory response to hypoxia in female rats
(Pflugers Archiv European Journal of Physiology, 2017-10-01) [Artigo]
Sex hormones may influence many physiological processes. Recently, we demonstrated that hormonal fluctuations of cycling female rats do not affect respiratory parameters during hypercapnia. However, it is still unclear ...
Participation of locus coeruleus in breathing control in female rats
(Respiratory Physiology and Neurobiology, 2017-11-01) [Artigo]
Several evidences indicate that the locus coeruleus (LC) is involved in central chemoreception responding to CO2/pH and displaying a high percentage of chemosensitive neurons (>80%). However, there are no studies about the ...
