Rhombencephalic pathways and neurotransmitters controlling deglutition.


Information from neuronal pathway tracing and pharmacologic microstimulation studies, in conjunction with electrophysiological data, has begun to coalesce into a coherent, if still incomplete, picture of the brain stem circuitry responsible for generating the motor patterns underlying deglutition and esophageal peristalsis in the rat. The intermediate… (More)
