In anesthetized rabbits, spirogram and diaphragmatic activity were examined during electrical stimulation of the bulbar lateral reticular formation. The activity of bulbar respiratory neurons was recorded contra- or ipsilaterally to the stimulation site. One volley of repetitive stimuli per breath was delivered during either inspiration of expiration. 1. Each volley of about 120 ms duration at 100 pulses per second, delivered early in inspiration, caused an immediate and transient inhibition of… CONTINUE READING
