Expiratory-related activities of spinal nerves are augmented after stimulation of the infracerebellar nucleus of the cerebellum. These stimulations alter neither inspiratory spinal neural activities nor inspiratory and expiratory laryngeal neural activities. It was hypothesized that efferents from the infracerebellar nucleus impinge on spinal motoneurons by a pathway that bypasses the medulla. In decerebrate, paralyzed, and vagotomized cats, phrenic and expiratory triangularis sterni activities… CONTINUE READING
