The intermediate area of the cat ventral medullary surface activates to mild hypoxia. Carotid body and vagal afferent contributions to this response were examined by recording activity levels, measured as changes in scattered 660 nm light, from the medullary surface in 7 anesthetized, spontaneously breathing cats following 12% O2 in N2 ventilatory(More)
Recent findings suggest that carotid chemoreceptor input into the ventral medullary surface intermediate area during hypoxia is inhibitory (Gozal et al., (1994) Neurosci. Lett. 178, 73-76. However, systemic hypoxia is a complex stimulus, and effects of carotid chemoreceptor stimulation per se on intermediate ventral medullary surface neuronal activity are(More)
