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 ...
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. ...
Involvement of the Nucleus Raphe Obscurus (ROb) on CO2 ventilatory response
(FASEB Journal, 2008-04-01) [Resumo]
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 ...
