Serotonergic neurons in the nucleus raphé obscurus are not involved in the ventilatory and thermoregulatory responses to hypoxia in adult rats
(Respiratory Physiology and Neurobiology, 2013-06-15) [Artigo]
The medullary raphé is an important component of the central respiratory network, playing a key role in CO2 central chemoreception. However, its participation in hypoxic ventilatory responses is less understood. In the ...
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. ...
Ionotropic glutamatergic receptors in the rostral medullary raphe modulate hypoxia and hypercapnia-induced hyperpnea
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2011-01-31) [Artigo]
It has been suggested that the medullary raphe (MR) plays a key role in the physiological responses to hypoxia and hypercapnia. We assessed the role of ionotropic glutamate receptors in the rostral MR (rMR) in the respiratory ...
The breathing pattern and the ventilatory response to aquatic and aerial hypoxia and hypercarbia in the frog Pipa carvalhoi
(Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology A-molecular & Integrative Physiology, 2012-07-01) [Artigo]
Anuran amphibians are known to exhibit an intermittent pattern of pulmonary ventilation and to exhibit an increased ventilatory response to hypoxia and hypercarbia. However, only a few species have been studied to date. ...
Hypoxic and hypercapnic ventilatory responses in rats with polycystic ovaries
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2015) [Artigo]
In female rats, a single injection of estradiol valerate (EV) results in effects that are similar to those observed in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). We hypothesized that EV-induced PCOS affects breathing ...
