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 ...
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 ...
TRPV1 inhibits the ventilatory response to hypoxia in adult rats, but not the CO 2 -drive to breathe
(Pharmaceuticals, 2019-01-01) [Artigo]
Receptors of the transient receptor potential (TRP) channels superfamily are expressed in many tissues and have different physiological functions. However, there are few studies investigating the role of these channels in ...
