Facilitation of the diaphragm response to transcranial magnetic stimulation by increases in human respiratory drive.


The human respiratory neural drive has an automatic component (bulbospinal pathway) and a volitional component (corticospinal pathway). The aim of this study was to assess the effects of a hypercapnia-induced increase in the automatic respiratory drive on the function of the diaphragmatic corticospinal pathway as independently as possible of any other… (More)
