It has previously been demonstrated that Pre-I neurons, localized in the rostral ventrolateral medulla, are important in the generation of the primary respiratory rhythm in brainstemspinal cord preparations from newborn rats. To investigate whether or not Pre-I neurons have endogenous pacemaker properties, we examined Pre-I neuron activity before and after chemical synaptic transmission was blocked by incubation in a low Ca2+ (0.2 mM), high Mg2+ (5 mM) solution (referred to here as low Ca… CONTINUE READING
