Experiments were performed on 55 urethane anesthetized and flaxedil immobilized rabbits under artificial respiration. Injection of L-Glutamate into the locus coeruleus area led to a marked augmentation of respiration. This effect of L-Glutamate could be significantly attenuated or reversed by a previous injection of prazosin, yohimbine and propranolol into the NTS area. These results indicate that the neurons in the locus coeruleus are involved in the regulation of the respiration as a result… 
A6 noradrenergic cell group modulates the hypoxic ventilatory response.
The aim of the present study was to define in adult rat the contribution of the LC noradrenergic neurons for the establishment of the ventilatory response to short-term hypoxia using 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA).
Conditional viral tracing reveals that steroidogenic factor 1‐positive neurons of the dorsomedial subdivision of the ventromedial hypothalamus project to autonomic centers of the hypothalamus and hindbrain
The present study indicates that the VMH may modulate sympathetic and autonomic activity via synaptic contacts in the RTN, NTS, and RVLM and provides significant anatomical evidence to support a role of theVMH in respiratory regulation.
