Rodents are a class of mammals that include rats, mice, squirrels, gerbils, beavers, guinea pigs and other animals that have sharp incisor teeth. Rodents' respiratory system is similar to that of most other mammals, including humans. The respiratory system is used to .

Abstract. There is an increasing tendency to combine multidisciplinary methods in studying the central nervous systems. One recently developed technique is the combination of electrophysiological and pharmacological investigations by making intracellular recording during extracellular iontophoresis of drugs to study the effects of neurotransmitters on neuronal activity and : Qi Jian Sun, Paul M.

Pilowsky. The transverse medullary slice preparation of neonatal rats has been used to study respiratory rhythm generation (Smith et al. ; Rekling & Feldman, ; Richter & Spyer, ).In this preparation, hypoglossal nerve rootlets generate spontaneous rhythmic discharges (Al-Zubaidy et al.

The effects of microiontophoretically applied morphine and its interactions with the effects of microiontophoretic applications of either acetylcholine, (–)‐noradrenaline or 5‐hydroxytryptamine have been studied on single neurones in the brain stem of rats anaesthetized with urethane.

As a first approach, neurons (n = ) in the caudal region of the medulla, in an extension overlapping Loeshcke's area, were classified by their bioelectric activities as: (a) R (n = 51), spontaneously active and related to the respiratory cycle or (b) NR (n = 66), spontaneously active but not related to the respiratory cycle.

The study was performed using iontophoretic applications of drugs on bulbar respiratory neurones. On these neurones GABA and glycine-sensitive sites were identified and differentiated on the basis of the actions of agonist (muscimol) or antagonists (bicuculline, picrotoxin and strychnine).

The medulla oblongata sits between the pons and the spinal cord. Its ventral (anterior) surface faces the basilar part of occipital bone and the dens of axis (C2), separated from them by the meninges and ligaments of the atlanto-occipital and atlantoaxial joints The dorsal (posterior) surface of the medulla faces the fourth ventricle of the brain.

The key role of the respiratory neural center is respiratory rhythm generation to maintain homeostasis through the control of arterial blood pCO2/pH and pO2 levels. The neuronal network responsible for respiratory rhythm generation in neonatal rat resides in the ventral side of the medulla and is composed of two groups; the parafacial respiratory group (pFRG) and the pre-Bötzinger.

One look through the microscope at a section of mouse lung (Figure 1) demonstrates that the mouse lung is considerably different in structure from the human lung, although relatively little has been published about the architecture of the mouse lung compared to other is known about the structure of the mouse lung probably has important bearing on its function [12–14].

We tested the hypothesis that pacemaker neurons generate breathing rhythm in mammals. We monitored respiratory-related motor nerve rhythm in neonatal rodent slice preparations. Blockade of the persistent sodium current (INaP), which was postulated to underlie voltage-dependent bursting in respiratory pacemaker neurons, with riluzole (≤ μM) did not alter the frequency of respiratory.

Obstructive sleep apnoea is a common and serious breathing problem that is caused by effects of sleep on pharyngeal muscle tone in individuals with narrow upper airways. There has been increasing focus on delineating the brain mechanisms that modulate pharyngeal muscle activity in the awake and asleep states in order to understand the pathogenesis of obstructive apnoeas and to.

- located in the brainstem along the length of the medulla with a small portion in the lower pons Brainstem, dorsal view: is a part of the dorsal vagal complex (DVC), together with area postrema and dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus - is divided into rostral and caudal regions - has probably a very similar location in human, mouse and rat brains.

The respiratory center is located in the medulla oblongata and pons, in the brainstem which are in hind brain before medulla and pons.

The respiratory center is made up of three major respiratory groups of neurons, two in the medulla and one in the the medulla they are the dorsal respiratory group, and the ventral respiratory group.

State-dependent reductions in serotonin delivery to upper airway dilator motoneuron activity may contribute to sleep apnea.

The brainstem conveys sensory and motor inputs between the spinal cord and the brain, and contains nuclei of the cranial nerves. It controls the sleep-wake cycle and vital functions via the ascending reticular activating system and the autonomic nuclei, respectively.

Brainstem dysfunction may lead to sensory and motor deficits, cranial nerve palsies, impairment of consciousness, dysautonomia.
