Acetylcholine (ACh) is well known to be involved in the control of breathing. However, no information is available on the role of ACh receptors (AChRs) within the lamprey respiratory network. The present study was performed on in vitro brainstem preparations of adult lampreys to investigate whether ACh affects respiratory activity possibly through an action on the paratrigeminal respiratory group (pTRG) that has been identified as an essential component of the respiratory network.
