The vagal motor system is involved in the regulation of cardiorespiratory and gastrointestinal functions. Vagal motor neurons are localized near or adjacent to catecholaminergic neurons, but their co-localisation seems species dependent, present in the cat but absent in the rabbit. In pig, a species commonly used as an experimental model in humans brain disorders (sudden infant death syndrome, hypoxia), the relationship is poorly understood. We aimed at describing the distribution of vagal… CONTINUE READING
