Effects of prestimulus respiratory levels on inhibitory respiratory response by nociceptive muscular afferents.


We have previously shown that the inhibitory respiratory response, which we call post-stimulus suppression, is induced by nociceptive muscular afferents. This phenomenon is thought to be caused by a negative feedback induced by excessive afferent inputs. In the present study, we investigated whether augmented levels of prestimulus respiration would… (More)
