    Transcortical streaming potentials were measured at each of two cortical-surface sites with respect to a reference electrode in the medullary canal, in the left ulnae of six live, adult (2 yr-old), male 18.2 ± 1.4 kg domestic turkeys, under general anesthesia, for each of two loading...

    It is generally assumed that the response pattern of on-, off- and neutral cells in the rostral ventromedial medulla (RVM) to noxious stimulation is independent of stimulation site. But recent studies have shown that a remarkable number of RVM neurons do not have whole-body receptive fields....

    Serotonergic neurons in the medulla have recently been shown to be sensors of carbon dioxide and pH. There is compelling evidence that the co-release of serotonin, substance P and thyrotropin-releasing hormone from these neurons stimulates the neural network that controls breathing at numerous...
