1. Activity was recorded from abdominal (expiratory) and phrenic (inspiratory) nerves during natural vestibular stimulation in multiple vertical planes and the horizontal plane in decerebrate cats. Vestibular stimulation was produced by rotating the head in animals whose upper cervical dorsal roots were transected to remove inputs from neck receptors; the… (More)
The purpose of the present study was to determine whether selective activation of vestibular receptors produces changes in blood pressure. Blood pressure was recorded during trapezoidal head rotations in cats with extensive denervations to eliminate nonlabyrinthine inputs that could be produced by the movements. Large (50 degrees) nose-up trapezoidal head… (More)
The purpose of the present study was to determine if selective activation of vestibular receptors during movement produces changes in hypoglossal nerve activity. Responses were recorded from the hypoglossal nerves during trapezoidal and sinusoidal head rotations in cats with extensive denervations to eliminate non-labyrinthine inputs that could be produced… (More)
Recordings were made from nerves innervating ventral lumbar paravertebral muscles (quadratus lumborum) during natural vestibular stimulation in vertical planes. The best direction of vestibular stimulation for producing an increase in nerve activity was near nose-up pitch in two-thirds of the animals, but was near nose-down pitch in the others. The response… (More)
