We investigated the behavior of medullary respiratory neurons in cats under pentobarbitone anesthesia, vagotomized, paralysed, and artificially ventilated to elucidate neural mechanisms underlying apnea and poststimulatory respiratory depression induced by superior laryngeal nerve (SLN) stimulation. Inspiratory neurons were completely inhibited during SLN stimulation and poststimulatory apnea. During recovery of inspiratory activity, augmenting inspiratory neurons were depressed, decrementing… CONTINUE READING
