Because some bulbospinal respiratory premotor neurons have bilateral projections to the phrenic nuclei, we investigated whether changes in contralateral phrenic motoneuron function would occur after unilateral axotomy via C(2) hemisection. Phrenic neurograms were recorded under baseline conditions and during hypercapnic and hypoxic challenge in C(2) hemisected, normal, and sham-operated rats at 1 and 2 months after injury. The rats were anesthetized, vagotomized, and mechanically ventilated. No… CONTINUE READING
