Abstract

The importance of adaptive control strategies (modulation and plasticity) in the control of breathing during exercise has become recognized only in recent years. In this review, we discuss new evidence for modulation of the exercise ventilatory response in humans, specifically, short- and long-term modulation. Short-term modulation is proposed to be an important regulatory mechanism that helps maintain blood gas homeostasis during exercise.
