Role of the Telencephalon in the Synchronization of Locomotor and Respiratory Frequencies during Walking in Canada Geese


To elucidate the importance of telencephalic structures and the effects of metabolic rate in the production of locomotor-respiratory coupling, we examined the relationship between locomotor and ventilatory patterns in: (1) intact trained geese, and (2) brainstem-stimulated (medullary reticular formation) decerebrate geese, that were walking on a treadmill… (More)
