Abstract

Chemical stimulation of caudal ventrolateral medulla evoked both pressor and depressor responses. The pressor sites were generally located caudal to depressor sites. Effects on heart rate were variable. Significant increases in minute ventilation were also observed, which were primarily due to changes in respiratory frequency.
