During hypoxia the respiratory network produces gasping in vivo and in vitro. To understand the mechanisms involved in such response and to validate in vitro findings, correlative studies are necessary. During perinatal age gasping generation is robust and then declines during postnatal development, possibly due to changes in either the rhythm generator(More)
The pre-Bötzinger complex (PBC) generates eupnea and sighs in normoxia and gasping during hypoxia through particular mixtures of intrinsic and synaptic properties. Among intrinsic properties, little is known about the role of Ca(2+)-activated potassium channels in respiratory rhythms generation. To examine this role, we tested the effects of openers and(More)
Behavioral sensitization to repeated ethanol (EtOH) exposure induces an increase in locomotor activity in mice. However, not all animals express such sensitization. Although the literature indicated that the hippocampus may play a role in EtOH sensitization, it is not known whether behavioral sensitization to EtOH is associated with preferential changes in(More)
