Role of the corpus callosum in paired activity of the respiratory center

Abstract

An interesting aspect of the study of the structural and functional organization and regulation of activity of the respiratory center (RC) is the study of its behavior as a paired formation. Close axon-dendritic interaction has been demonstrated between respiratory neurons (RN) of the ventral and dorsal respiratory groups of the right and left halves of the medulla [12-15] and connections have been found between the nuclei of the medial zone and respiratory nuclei of the lateral zone [9], which must play a definite role in the functional unification of the two halves of RC as a single mechanism. At the same time it has been shown that an essential role in paired activity of RC is played by suprabulbar structures [4, 5, i0], including the cerebral commissures [4, 6].
