NMDA and non-NMDA receptors may play distinct roles in timing mechanisms and transmission in the feline respiratory network.

Abstract

1. Activation of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) glutamate receptors in the brainstem network of respiratory neurones is required to terminate inspiration in the absence of lung afferents, but it is not required in the inspiratory motor act of lung inflation. In the present study we examined the involvement of non-NMDA ionotropic glutamate receptors in these… (More)
