Lateral hemisection of the cervical (C2) spinal cord in the rat interrupts ipsilateral bulbospinal respiratory pathways arising mainly from the rostral ventral respiratory group (rVRG) and Bötzinger complex and projecting to phrenic motoneurons in C3-C5. Deafferented phrenic motoneurons can be reactivated via previously silent contralateral pathways, a process called the crossed phrenic phenomenon (CPP). In order to further characterise the neuronal bases of the CPP and quantify the neurons… CONTINUE READING
