Muscimol dialysis in the rostral ventral medulla reduced the CO(2) response in awake and sleeping piglets.

Abstract

Some victims of sudden infant death syndrome have arcuate nucleus abnormalities. The arcuate nucleus may be homologous with ventral medullary structures in the cat known to be involved in the control of breathing and the response to systemic hypercapnia. We refer to putative arcuate homologues in the piglet collectively as the rostral ventral medulla (RVM… (More)
