1. The responses of single units in the cat's primary visual cortex to moving bars have been examined quantitatively as a function of bar length.2. For about half the cells studied, very long bars evoked weaker responses than short bars, implying that there were inhibitory regions flanking the receptive field centre. In another quarter of the cell sample,(More)
The overall pattern of c-fos immunoreactivity was studied in the brainstem and spinal cord of cats subjected to moderate hypoxia or hypercapnia. In control cats (normoxic, normocapnic), c-fos was expressed mainly in pontine and periaqueductal grey but not in brainstem structures engaged in respiratory control nor in the spinal cord. Both hypoxia and(More)
At the rostral level of the thorax, the intercostal muscles participate both in postural and respiratory functions to a variable degree depending upon the considered muscle: external intercostal, intercartilaginous, internal intercostal, and triangularis sterni. In order to determine if these physiological properties are related to a special organization at(More)
1. Intercostal muscles participate both in postural and respiratory functions to a variable degree dependent upon the specific interspace or muscle. In order to determine if these physiological properties are related to a special organization at the spinal cord level, we have used the retrograde transport of HRP as a tool for studying the spinal(More)
The activities of the diaphragmatic, internal intercostal and hypoglossal-innervated muscles were studied in adult decerebrate cats in response to 5-HT and related agents (8-OH-DPAT and DOI). The drugs were placed on the floor of the IVth ventricle. The mean respiratory frequency (Fi) increased (124-193% of the control value) within 3 min of the 5-HT(More)
The role of 5-HT in inducing apnoeas (a major element in sudden infant death syndrome) is controversial because while 5-HT is a respiratory depressant in vivo, it evokes respiratory analeptic effects when applied to the isolated brainstem of the newborn rat. In decerebrate newborn rats, the electrical activity of the diaphragm and that of a hypoglossally(More)
In this study in the cat, the tracer combination of the anterogradely transported Fast Blue and the retrogradely transported Nuclear Yellow was used to label dorsal root ganglion cells related to phrenic afferents running up through the ipsilateral dorsal column. These afferents are few; some of them leave the dorsal column near their segment of entry.(More)
The computerization of SaO2 recording during polysomnographic monitoring allows the construction of a diagram expressing the percentage of TIB spent at different steps in saturation. We studied the value of this diagram in three groups of male patients: (1) nine healthy subjects (all volunteers); (2) 25 patients with COPD who had a mean daily SaO2 of 92.3(More)
The variability in the orocaecal transit time as measured by the lactulose/breath hydrogen method has been studied for three conditions: lactulose given with a meal, subjects sitting; lactulose given with a meal, subjects semirecumbent; lactulose given in aqueous solution, subjects semirecumbent. Thirty three healthy subjects attended on up to 12 occasions.(More)
