Example text

By contrast, lung ventilation in reptiles and mammals involves five sets of motoneurons.  Presumably, the basic features of the respiratory CPG are conserved among the three families.  The motor control systems vary among the three, innervating different respiratory muscles as depicted.  Muscles: OP, oropharyngeal; LX, laryngeal; Sh, shoulder; RC, rib cage; D, diaphragm; Ab, abdominal.  This is reflected in the appearance of central respiratory chemoreception, a key component of CO2 homeostasis.

The last may form an additional type of respiratory neuron not commonly encountered in the medulla.  Finally, in the rostral VRG, Page 30 the retrofacial nucleus contains pharyngeal motoneurons, with augmenting expiratory, postinspiratory, and augmenting inspiratory discharge patterns (70).  Accordingly, in addition to playing a role in phase­switching, the KF neurons may be an important source of respiratory input to this group of respiratory motoneurons.  Although this type of evidence does not indicate the location of the neurons that are the source of the inhibitory projections, it clearly establishes the existence of an inhibitory connection between the two types of neurons.

Rhythm Generators: Pacemaker or Network Mechanisms?  As described in the following, both types of respiratory CPGs operate in certain species at particular times; however, what type of mechanism underlies eupneic breathing in vertebrates cannot yet be stated.  This convincing evidence is, in fact, the strongest evidence provided for any CPG that network oscillatory behavior is an emergent property, dependent entirely on the nature of synaptic interconnections.  On breaking the surface, the pneumostome opens slowly and remains open for several seconds while active expiration occurs, followed by a passive, asperative inspiration, caused by passive recoil of the respiratory apparatus.
