THE VENTILATORY as well as the cardiovascular responses to exercise are widely believed to be evoked by two neural mechanisms. The first is a feedforward mechanism, called central command (3), which may originate in or involve the posterior hypothalamus and midbrain (4). The second is a feedback mechanism that arises from contracting muscles and has been termed the exercise pressor reflex (10). Thin fiber afferents (i.e., group III and IV) comprise the afferent limb of the exercise pressor… CONTINUE READING
