Serotonergic mechanisms on breathing modulation in the rat locus coeruleus
(Pflugers Archiv: European Journal of Physiology, 2010-02-01) [Artigo]
The locus coeruleus (LC) is a noradrenergic nucleus that plays an important role in the ventilatory response to hypercapnia. This nucleus is densely innervated by serotonergic fibers and contains high density of serotonin ...
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 ...
Periaqueductal gray matter modulates the hypercapnic ventilatory response
(Pflugers Archiv: European Journal of Physiology, 2012-08-01) [Artigo]
The periaqueductal gray (PAG) is a midbrain structure directly involved in the modulation of defensive behaviors. It has direct projections to several central nuclei that are involved in cardiorespiratory control. Although ...
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. ...
