Antagonistic modulation of spontaneous neural network activities in isolated newborn rat brainstem preparations by opioids and methylxanthinesDownload
Apnea of prematurity is a common problem among the infants born before term pregnancy. Administration of respiratory stimulating drugs methylxanthines is the most frequent therapy, often in combination with the use of intubation. Opioids are used to reduce the pain associated with intubation,...
The Neonatal Locus Coeruleus is a Differentiated and Complex Neuromodulatory System as Revealed by Local Field Potential AnalysisDownload
The locus coeruleus (LC) in the pons of the brainstem provides the sole source of noradrenergic afferent input to most brain structures including the cerebral cortex, hippocampus, cerebellum and spinal cord. The resulting modulation of activity is important for controlling behaviors like...
