The article cites a study on hemodynamic changes induced by pulsatile compression of the ventrolateral medulla. Most homeostatically regulated functions of the mammalian body, including the circulatory system, are controlled by the central nervous system. Different brain areas are known to exert important modulatory influences on cardiovascular function and central nervous system participation in the pathogenesis of such conditions as cardiac arrythmias. This led to the development of an acute experimental model to demonstrate the correlation between pulsatile pressure applied on this specific area of the brain and the regulation of heart function.

    A long-standing theory posits that central chemoreception, the CNS mechanism for CO2 detection and regulation of breathing, involves neurons located at the ventral surface of the medulla oblongata (VMS). Using in vivo and in vitro electrophysiological recordings, we identify VMS neurons within...
