We investigated the effect of a mu-opioid agonist, DAGO, on the respiratory frequency of pons-medulla-spinal cord preparations from newborn rats. Bath application of a low concentration of DAGO (0.2 microM) facilitated respiratory rhythm in pons-medulla-spinal cord preparations, whereas it induced respiratory depression in medulla-spinal cord preparations(More)
Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) is a neuropeptide that mediates neuroendocrine, autonomic, and behavioral processes associated with the stress response. CRF-containing fibers and receptors are found in various regions of the central nervous system including the spinal cord. Here, we report excitatory effects of CRF on sympathetic preganglionic neurons(More)
