Several studies have suggested that the caudal hypothalamus modulates responses to hypercapnia and hypoxia. In addition, this area of the hypothalamus contains neurons that have a sympathoexcitatory discharge. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether the basal discharge of caudal hypothalamic neurons that are stimulated by hypercapnia or hypoxia is related to cardiovascular (sympathetic discharge and/or the cardiac cycle) and/or respiratory activity (phrenic nerve discharge… CONTINUE READING
