Despite focus on brainstem areas in central respiratory control, regions rostral to the medulla and pons are now recognized as being important in modulating respiratory outflow during various physiological states. The focus of this review is to highlight the role that suprapontine areas of the mammalian brain play in ventilatory control mechanisms. New imaging techniques have become invaluable in confirming and broadening our understanding of the manner in which the cerebral cortex of humans… CONTINUE READING
