Winter metabolic depression does not change arterial baroreflex control of heart rate in the tegu lizard Salvator merianae
(Journal Of Experimental Biology, 2016-03-01) [Artigo]
Baroreflex regulation of blood pressure is important for maintaining appropriate tissue perfusion. Although temperature affects heart rate (f(H)) reflex regulation in some reptiles and toads, no data are available on the ...
Effect of temperature on chemosensitive locus coeruleus neurons of savannah monitor lizards, Varanus exanthematicus
(Journal Of Experimental Biology, 2016-09-15) [Artigo]
Savannah monitor lizards (Varanus exanthematicus) are unusual among ectothermic vertebrates in maintaining arterial pH nearly constant during changes in body temperature in contrast to the typical alpha-stat regulating ...
Corticotropin-releasing factor in the locus coeruleus as a modulator of ventilation in rats
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2016-11-01) [Artigo]
The locus coeruleus (LC) is a pontine noradrenergic nucleus that acts as a central chemoreceptor to CO2/pH and has been implicated in the cognitive aspects of stress responses. This participation is in part mediated by the ...
Baroreflex regulation affects ventilation in the cururu toad Rhinella schneideri
(Journal Of Experimental Biology, 2016-11-15) [Artigo]
Anurans regulate short-term oscillations in blood pressure through changes in heart rate (f(H)), vascular resistance and lymphatic f(H). Lung ventilation in anurans is linked to blood volume homeostasis by facilitating ...
Orexinergic system in the locus coeruleus modulates the CO2 ventilatory response
(Pflugers Archiv European Journal of Physiology, 2016-05-01) [Artigo]
The orexins are hypothalamic neuropeptides involved in an array of functions such as regulation of sleep/wake states and chemoreception to CO2/pH. The locus coeruleus (LC) is a chemosensitive site and expresses an extensive ...
