Desensitization of the cough reflex during limb muscle contraction in anesthetized rabbits.


The 'cough network' exhibits plasticity at the sensor and integration levels leading to modulation of the strength or pattern of the cough reflex. Little is known about the interactions between cough and human activities, especially during exercise. The present study was designed to determine whether exercise, mimicked by electrically induced muscle… (More)
