Cardiorespiratory control is mediated in part by central chemosensitive neurons that respond to increased CO(2) (hypercapnia). Activation of these neurons is thought to involve hypercapnia-induced decreases in intracellular pH (pH(i)). All previous measurements of hypercapnia-induced pH(i) changes in chemosensitive neurons have been obtained from the soma, but chemosensitive signaling could be initiated in the dendrites of these neurons. In this study, membrane potential (V(m)) and pH(i) were… CONTINUE READING
