Repetitive electrical stimulation of the carotid sinus nerve or vagus nerve in rats elicited abrupt reflex shortening or prolongation, respectively, of the inter-burst interval of phrenic nerve activity followed by exponential decay from the initial response. Removal of the stimuli resulted in transient post-stimulus rebound excitation or inhibition that… CONTINUE READING
