In adult rats, autologous segments of the peroneal nerve were implanted into the medulla oblongata at the level of the obex either on the midline (midline grafts, n = 4), where respiratory axons decussate, or on the left side (lateral grafts, n = 5) in the area of the respiratory cell bodies. Several months after the graft implantation, spontaneous unitary… CONTINUE READING
