    Development of pacemaker properties and rhythmogenic mechanisms in the mouse embryonic respiratory network

    Marc Chevalier et al.
    Pacemaker neurons are present in the preBötC circuitry of mouse embryos and their role in driving respiratory network activity changes during the critical period immediately before birth.

    Insights into the dynamic control of breathing revealed through cell-type-specific responses to substance P

    Nathan A Baertsch, Jan-Marino Ramirez
    The neuromodulator substance P enhances mechanisms of recurrent excitation between breaths to control breathing frequency and stability.

    Opioids modulate an emergent rhythmogenic process to depress breathing

    Xiaolu Sun et al.
    Inspiratory rhythmogenesis is mediated by an emergent mechanism independent of bursts associated with motor output and is modulated by opioids, pointing to strategies for ameliorating opioid-induced respiratory depression.

    Surface color and predictability determine contextual modulation of V1 firing and gamma oscillations

    Alina Peter et al.
    Colored surfaces induce strong gamma-synchronization yet sparse firing in V1 when receptive field inputs are predicted from the surrounding spatial context.

    Biophysical mechanisms in the mammalian respiratory oscillator re-examined with a new data-driven computational model

    Ryan S Phillips et al.
    Computational modeling motivated by recent experiments clarifies biophysical mechanisms generating the rhythm and amplitude of breathing at the level of neurons and brain circuits in mammals.

    Motoneurons regulate the central pattern generator during drug-induced locomotor-like activity in the neonatal mouse

    Melanie Falgairolle et al.
    Motoneuron activity provides feedback to the spinal network responsible for generating locomotion in the developing mouse spinal cord.
    1. Neuroscience

    Atoh1-dependent rhombic lip neurons are required for temporal delay between independent respiratory oscillators in embryonic mice

    Srinivasan Tupal et al.
    The rhythmic patterns of activity that underlie breathing are generated and coordinated by distinct populations of neurons within the brainstem.

    Spinal Shox2 interneuron interconnectivity related to function and development

    Ngoc T Ha, Kimberly J Dougherty
    Spinal Shox2 interneurons are strongly interconnected by gap junctional coupling in a function-specific manner, which provides a mechanism for synchronization of rhythm-generating neurons and may contribute to locomotor rhythmicity.

    Distributed rhythm generators underlie Caenorhabditis elegans forward locomotion

    Anthony D Fouad et al.
    The forward locomotor circuit of the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans consists of multiple rhythm-generating units coupled to one another in a bidirectional manner.
