Acute inhibition of A6 neurons and effect on respiratory responses to activation of central chemoreceptors of conscious adult rats. Summary of data showing the changes in the reflex responses of the fR (A), VT (B), VE (C), DiaEMG amplitude (D), number of sighs (E), sigh amplitude (F), active expiration magnitude (G) and active expiration incidence (H; number 1 means that AbdEMG active expiration is at its maximal value established in each animal during hypercapnia – see Methods) after application of Alst in conscious adult rats in which the LC was transduced with PRSx8-AlstR-GFP-LVV. *p < 0.0001.
