People with Rett syndrome (RTT) have breathing instability in addition to other neuropathological manifestations. The breathing disturbances contribute to the high incidence of unexplained death and abnormal brain development. However, the cellular mechanisms underlying the breathing abnormalities remain unclear. To test the hypothesis that the central(More)
Involvement of TRP channels in the CO 2 chemosensitivity of locus coeruleus neurons.gic neurons in the locus coeruleus (LC) play a role in the ventilatory response to hypercapnia. Here, we show evidence for the involvement of transient receptor potential (TRP) channels. We found that the input resistance was reduced during an exposure to 8% CO 2 in ϳ35% LC(More)
Catecholaminergic neurons in the locus coeruleus (LC) play a role in the ventilatory response to hypercapnia. Here, we show evidence for the involvement of transient receptor potential (TRP) channels. We found that the input resistance was reduced during an exposure to 8% CO(2) in ~35% LC neurons in mouse brain slices, accompanied by depolarization and(More)
