Respiratory afferent stimulation can elicit increases in respiratory motor output that outlast the period of stimulation by seconds to minutes [short-term potentiation (STP)]. This study examined the potential contribution of spinal mechanisms to STP in anesthetized, vagotomized, paralyzed rats. After C(1) spinal cord transection, stimulus trains (100 Hz, 5-60 s) of the C(1)-C(2) lateral funiculus elicited STP of phrenic nerve activity that peaked several seconds poststimulation.
