Breathing control and central chemoreception are regulated by the retrotrapezoid nucleus (RTN), a group of glutamatergic neurons that express the transcription factor Phox2b and are strongly activated by increase in CO2/H+. Cerebral blood flow is highly sensitive to changes in CO2/H+ where an increase in CO2/H+ causes vasodilation and increased blood flow. However, our recent discovery ...
The catecholaminergic (TH) neurons reside in the rostral half of the ventrolateral medulla (RVLM). These neurons use the glutamate as a neurotransmitter, and beyond catecholamine, synthetize other neuropeptides. C1 neurons, located in the RVLM, are distributed in the viscerotropic organization, and, in the most part, are intensely activated by hypoglycemia, infection or inflammation, hy...
