Abstract

Earlier studies from this laboratory suggested that neurones of the Vth’s nerve motor nucleus might be involved not only in their “routine” functions (including control of muscles responsible for maintaining upper airway patency) but also in the control of the respiratory pattern (Gromysz et al., in the press).
