The functional role of Bötzinger complex (Böt. c.) projections to the expiration-related (ER) area of the caudal ventral respiratory group (cVRG) was investigated in anesthetized, vagotomized, paralyzed and artificially ventilated cats. ER neurons in both the ipsi- and the contralateral cVRG displayed excitatory responses to Böt. c. electrical… CONTINUE READING
