Central respiratory modulation of barosensitive neurones in rat caudal ventrolateral medulla.


The sympathetic nerves that maintain blood pressure are modulated by the central respiratory generator. Neurones in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) that drive this sympathetic nerve activity (SNA) also display central respiratory drive (CRD)-related activity, suggesting integration of respiratory and cardiovascular regulatory systems within the… (More)
