The neuronal circuit of augmenting effects on intrinsic laryngeal muscle activities induced by nasal air-jet stimulation in decerebrate cats.


We previously demonstrated that during nasal air-jet stimulation, both the activities of intrinsic laryngeal adductor and abductor muscles persistently increase, whereas the respiratory cycle prolongs and the activity of diaphragm decreases [Am. J. Rhinol. 9 (1995) 203-208; Neurosci. Res. 31 (1998) 137-146]. The purpose of this study was to clarify the… (More)
