The respiratory system expresses multiple forms of plasticity, defined as alterations in the breathing pattern that persist or develop after a stimulus. Stimulation of breathing with intermittent hypoxia (IH) elicits long-term facilitation (LTF), a type of plasticity in which respiratory motor activity progressively increases in anaesthetized animals, even after the stimuli have ceased and blood gases have normalized. It is unknown whether the sympathetic nervous system similarly expresses IH… CONTINUE READING
