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. ...
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 ...
