Cells that discharge in early expiration and inhibit other respiratory cells purportedly cause a separate phase of the respiratory cycle that has been named "postinspiration." Our objective was to study these postinspiratory cells in the intact unanesthetized cat during sleep, wakefulness, and behavioral inhibition of inspiration, but we were unable to find(More)
In intact unanesthetized cats, we studied the behavior of five medullary respiratory cell types during augmented breaths: 1) decrementing, 2) augmenting, and 3) late-onset inspiratory cells and 4) decrementing and 5) augmenting expiratory cells. Certain features of their behavior were inconsistent with either their proposed role in rhythmogenesis or the(More)
