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 ...
Hypercapnic and Hypoxic Respiratory Response during Wakefulness and Sleep in a Streptozotocin Model of Alzheimer's Disease in Rats
(Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, 2018-01-01) [Artigo]
Besides the typical cognitive decline, patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) develop disorders of the respiratory system, such as sleep apnea, shortness of breath, and arrhythmias. These symptoms are aggravated with the ...
