A 1:1 coordination between locomotor and respiratory movements has been described in various mammalian species during fast locomotion, and several mechanisms underlying such interactions have been proposed. Here we use an isolated brainstem-spinal cord preparation of the neonatal rat to determine the origin of this coupling, which could derive either from a direct interaction between the central locomotor- and respiratory-generating networks themselves or from an indirect influence via a… CONTINUE READING
