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 ...
Role of Locus coeruleus noradrenergic neurons in cardiorespiratory and thermal control during hypoxia
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2010-02-28) [Artigo]
We investigated the specific role of LC noradrenergic (NA) neurons in the cardiorespiratory and thermal responses to hypoxia. Aiming this, LC NA neurons were selectively destroyed by microinjecting 6-OHDA bilaterally in ...
The locus coeruleus and central chemosensitivity
(Respiratory Physiology & Neurobiology, 2010-10-31) [Artigo]
The locus coeruleus (LC) lies in the dorsal pons and supplies noradrenergic (NA) input to many regions of the brain, including respiratory control areas. The LC may provide tonic input for basal respiratory drive and is ...
