This study was designed to investigate whether adenosine A1 receptors could modulate primary rhythmical respiration in mammals. Experiments were performed in in vitro brainstem slice preparations from neonatal rats. These preparations included the medial region of the nucleus retrofacialis (mNRF) with the hypoglossal nerve rootlets retained. The activity of(More)
This experiment was expected to test whether nitric oxide (NO) exerted significant effect on the central respiratory rhythm. Experiments were performed on in vitro brainstem slice preparations from neonatal rats. These preparations include the medial region of the nucleus retrofacialis (mNRF); a part of pre-Bötinger complex, ventral respiratory group (VRG)(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the projections between the medial region of the nucleus retrofacialis (mNRF) and other respiratory regions in rat brainstem. METHODS Twenty-five adult SD rats were used in this study, which received anesthesia with sodium pentobarbitone. Retrograde/anterograde tracing methods were employed by unilateral microinjection into mNRF with(More)
