Depletion of rostral ventrolateral medullary catecholaminergic neurons impairs the hypoxic ventilatory response in conscious rats.

Abstract

The stimuli that commonly activate the catecholaminergic C1 neurons (nociception, hypotension, and hypoxia) also increase breathing. Pharmacogenetic evidence suggests that catecholaminergic neurons regulate breathing. Therefore, we evaluated whether the loss of C1 cells affects cardiorespiratory control during resting, hypoxic (8% O2) and hypercapnic (7… (More)
