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 ...
