Frogs produce two distinct yet highly coordinated ventilatory behaviors, buccal and lung. Lung ventilation occurs in short episodes, interspersed with periods of buccal ventilation. Recent data suggests that two brainstem oscillators are involved in generating these behaviors, one primarily responsible for buccal ventilation, the other for lung. Here we use(More)
