Monoamines (noradrenaline (NA), adrenaline (AD), dopamine (DA) and serotonin (5-HT) are key neurotransmitters that are implicated in multiple physiological and pathological brain mechanisms, including control of respiration. The monoaminergic system is known to be widely distributed in the animal kingdom, which indicates a considerable degree of phylogenetic conservation of this system amongst vertebrates. Substantial progress has been made in uncovering the participation of the brain… CONTINUE READING
