Cardiac vagal preganglionic neurones (CVPNs) show respiratory modulation in the nucleus ambiguus but not in the dorsal vagal nucleus. Both types of neurones can be activated by pulmonary C fibre afferents. Another brainstem area that has been identified as containing CVPNs is the intermediate zone between the dorsal vagal nucleus and nucleus ambiguus. Experiments were carried out in alpha-chloralose-anaesthetized cats to determine the physiological properties of these CVPNs and their responses… CONTINUE READING
