Recent evidence suggests that administration of low doses of morphine causes respiratory stimulation, along with a more active electroencephalogram (EEG) in the fetal lamb. The present study used selective opioid agonists and antagonists to determine the role mu 1- and delta-opioid receptor subtypes play in the response as well as determine if endogenous… CONTINUE READING
