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 ...
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 ...
Glutamate metabotropic receptors in the lateral hypothalamus/perifornical area reduce the CO 2 chemoreflex
(Respiratory Physiology and Neurobiology, 2019-02-01) [Artigo]
It has been shown that the lateral hypothalamus/perifornical area (LH/PFA) exerts an important role on arousal-state variations of the central chemoreflex, but the mechanisms that underlie LH/PFA chemoreception are poorly ...
