This study tested whether the glial cells are involved in the exciting effects of doxapram on brainstem slice in vitro. Experiments were performed in brainstem slice preparations from neonatal rats. The medial area of nucleus retrofacialis (mNRF) and the hypoglossal nerve (XII nerve) were contained in the preparations. The slices were perfused with modified(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of doxapram on the respiratory rhythmical discharge activity (RRDA) in the brainstem slices of neonatal rats. METHODS Thirty neonatal SD rats (of either sex, 0-3 days old) were randomly divided into 6 equal groups (groups I-VI), and the brainstem slices which contained the medial region of the nucleus retrofacialis(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the role of group II metabotropic glutamate receptors in the modulation of basic respiratory rhythm. METHODS Neonatal (0-3 days) SD rats of either sex were used. The medulla oblongata brain slice containing the medial region of the nucleus retrofacialis (mNRF) and the hypoglossal nerve rootlets was prepared, and the surgical procedure(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the role of glial cell metabolism in the generation and regulation of central respiratory rhythm. METHODS The medulla oblongata slices (600-700 microm) containing the medial region of the nucleus retrofacialis (mNRF) with the hypoglossal nerve rootlets retained from 12 neonatal (0-3 days) Sprague-Dawley rats were prepared and perfused(More)
