BACKGROUND Control of ventilation depends on a brainstem neuronal network that controls activity of the motor neurons innervating the respiratory muscles. This network includes the pontine respiratory group and the dorsal and ventral respiratory groups in the medulla. Neurologic disorders affecting these areas or the respiratory motor unit may lead to abnormal breathing. REVIEW SUMMARY The brainstem respiratory network contains neurons critical for respiratory rhythmogenesis; this network… CONTINUE READING
