Respiratory effects produced by microinjection of L-glutamate and an uptake inhibitor of L-glutamate into the caudal subretrofacial area of the medulla.

The purposes of our study were to determine the type of respiratory changes that would occur when either an excitatory amino acid receptor agonist or an uptake inhibitor was administered into the caudal subretrofacial area. This was done by microinjecting either L-glutamate or L-pyrrolidine-2,4-dicarboxylate (L-trans-2,4-PDC) into the caudal subretrofacial… CONTINUE READING
