A previous study in our laboratory demonstrated that the stimulation with microinjection of DL-homocysteic acid of cell bodies in the rostral portion of the external formation of the nucleus ambiguus (Aext) increased total lung resistance in dogs. In the present study anatomic experiments were conducted in dogs to determine if the rostral Aext contains vagal preganglionic cell bodies that give rise to axons in the pulmonary branches of the vagus nerve. The application of horseradish peroxidase… CONTINUE READING
