1. In midcollicular-decerebrate, gallamine-paralysed, vagotomized cats, efferent phrenic discharge was recorded as an indicator of the central respiratory cycle. Electrical stimulation (50-250/sec) delivered in the rostral lateral pontine ;pneumotaxic centre' region (in and near nucleus parabrachialis), and set to occur at specified times in the cycle, produced powerful respiratory effects: (a) at dorsolateral points, inspiratory-facilitatory effects (increase of phrenic discharge, shortening… CONTINUE READING
