Brain Nuclei Controlling the Spinal Respiratory Motoneurons in the Newborn Mouse
A retrograde and transneuronal infection with rabies virus was performed in mouse neonates to locate the central nervous structures involved in the motor command of the spinal respiratory motoneurons and to discriminate the location and hierarchical organization of the neurons in and between these infected central nervous structures.
