Activation of respiratory afferents by resistive loaded breathing modifies somatosensory evoked potentials to median nerve stimulation in humans.

Abstract

The cortical projections of respiratory afferents (vagus and respiratory muscle nerves) are well documented in humans. It is also shown that their activation during loaded breathing modifies the perception of tactile sensation as well as the motor drive to skeletal muscles. The effects of expiratory or inspiratory loaded breathing on somatosensory evoked… (More)
