Cardiorespiratory effects of gap junction blockade in the locus coeruleus in unanesthetized adult rats
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
The locus coeruleus (LC) plays an important role in central chemoreception. In young rats (P9 or younger), 85% of LC neurons increase firing rate in response to hypercapnia vs. only about 45% of neurons from rats P10 or ...
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 ...
Ventilatory, metabolic, and thermal responses to hypercapnia in female rats: effects of estrous cycle, ovariectomy, and hormonal replacement
(Journal Of Applied Physiology, 2015-07-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this study was to examine how estrous cycle, ovariectomy, and hormonal replacement affect the respiratory [ventilation ((V)over dotE), tidal volume, and respiratory frequency], metabolic ((V)over dotO(2)), and ...
