Increases in lung volume inhibit the inspiratory output from the medulla, but the effect of lung inflation on the voluntary control of breathing in humans is not known. We tested corticospinal excitability using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to evoke a response in the scalene muscles. TMS was delivered at rest at three different lung volumes between functional residual capacity (FRC) and total lung capacity (TLC) during incremental inspiratory and incremental expiratory manoeuvres… CONTINUE READING
