Phase-switching of respiration induced by central gray and hippocampal stimulation in the cat
Hockman CH, Duffin J, Rupert AH, and Vachon BR(1974) Phase-switching of respiration induced by central gray and hippocampal stimulation in the cat. J Neural Transm 35:4 327–35.
Abstract: In vagotomized adult cats with the spinal cord transected at T2, short trains of electrical pulses delivered to the central gray substance of the midbrain and the ventral hippocampus initiated a phase reversal in respiration from expiration to inspiration. A transition from inspiration to expiration, however, was not observed. It is suggested that this phase-switch may be mediated via a reticular formation input into the medulla rather than via the pontine "synchronizing mechanisms".
