Activity of dorsal respiratory group inspiratory neurons during laryngeal-induced fictive coughing and swallowing in decerebrate cats


Membrane potential changes and/or discharges from 36 inspiratory neurons were recorded intracellularly in the dorsal respiratory group (DRG; i.e., the ventrolateral subdivision of the nucleus tractus solitarii) in decerebrate, paralyzed, and ventilated cats. Electrical activities were recorded from both somata (n=10) and axons (n=26). Activities during… (More)
