The single action potential was recorded to determine the pattern of spontaneous vagal afferent activity corresponding to the respiratory cycle of rats. According to either the adaptibility or the responsiveness of the discharge to the respiratory cycle, the vagal afferents were classified into 5 categories. One group of the afferents discharged constantly and continuously as long as the lung deflation continued. Such activity has been reported only in rabbits.

It is postulated that vagal deflation-sensitive receptors are related to the peripheral mechanism in normal respiration and Hering-Breuer deflation reflex in rats, and results indicate that rat vagus nerves deliver afferent information from at least three types of pulmonary receptors: pulmonary stretch and lung irritant-like receptors and the receptors specifically sensitive to expiration or lung deflation.

The effect of inhaled carbon dioxide and hypoxia mixtures on the electrical and mechanical activities of respiratory muscles in dogs.
It is suggested that carbon dioxide affects the regulation of breathing above the respiratory muscles and in the muscles themselves. Expand
Respiratory disorders following 1,1,1-trichloroethane inhalation: a role of reflex mechanism arising from lungs.
It is suggested that rapid and shallow breathing following higher 1,1,1-TCE concentrations may be related to the increase in the activity of the lung stretch receptor and not based on anesthetic effects but enhancement of Hering Breuer reflex following 1,2,2- TCE inhalation. Expand
