What is a respiratory control center?

Respiratory control centers are located in the medulla and the pons. In the medulla the ventral respiratory group contains rhythm generators whose output drives respiration. Also in the medulla, the neurons of the dorsal respiratory group integrate peripheral sensory input and modify the rhythms generated by the VRG. The pons respiratory centers interact with the medulla centers to smooth the breathing pattern. The respiratory center (RC), itself, is located in the medulla oblongata, the lowermost portion of the brainstem.

Nerve impulses that stimulate inspiration originate in which respiratory center?

The Pontine Respiratory Group stimulates abnormal breathing, called inspiration, during inhalation. The PRG consists of a network of neurons located in the rostral dorsal lateral pons.

Nerve impulses from what will result in inspiration?

The ventral respiratory group (VGR), a network of neurons that extends in the ventral brain stem from the spinal cord to the pons-medulla junction, appears to be the rhythm-generating and integrative center of respiration.

What are the respiratory areas?

The components of the respiratory areas are widely scattered throughout the pons and medulla oblongata. Two parts of the respiratory areas are of special interest: the respiratory center of the medulla and the respiratory group of the pons.

Where in the medulla are the neurons that set the basic respiratory rhythm?

The answer is Ventral Respiratory Group or VRGIt contains the rhythm generators "whose output drives respiration".Hoehn, Marieb Human Anatomy & PhysiologyEighth Edition pg. 835

What is a group of neurons working together called?

A large group of neurons working together is called a brain. A smaller group is called a ganglion.

Site of respiratory rhythm and breathing in the brain?

The brainstem is the respiratory rhythm generator. It is involved in involuntary breathing. Within the brainstem, the ventral respiratory group and the dorsal respiratory group are responsible for generating breathing rhythm and the pontine respiratory group regulates the pattern of that rhythm.

What is the name of a group of nerve cells?

A group of nerve cells or neurons is called ganglia.

What is a basal ganglion?

A basal ganglion is any of a group of nuclei in the brain interconnected with the cerebral cortex, the thalamus and the brainstem.

Why is your respiratory system called a 'system'?

Because a system is a group of organs and respiratory has organs.

When was Center Theatre Group created?

What do the pneumotaxic center of the pons do?

The pneumotaxic center is aka pontine respiratory group (PRG). Its function is to inhibit inspiration, regulating inspiratory volume and rate. It can be considered an antagonist to the apneustic center which produces abnormal, deep, prolonged inspiratory gasps. Both of these structures are found in the pons of the midbrain.

What modifies the medulla centers?

The pontine respiratory centers influence and modify the activity of the medullary neurons. The pontine respiratory group, formerly called the pneumotaxic center qand other centers transmit impulses to the vrg of the medulla. this input modifies and fine tunes the breathing rhythms generated by the vrg durng certain activities such as vocalizationm sleep,and exercise. as you would expect from these functins, the pontine respratory centers, like the drg, receive input from higher brain centers and from various sensory receptors in the periphery.

Where the neural control centers of respiratory rhythm?

there is a specific group of cells found in the medula (part of the brain stem) which regulate the rhythm of breathing, hence the name (of this cellular formation) the Medulary Rhythmicity Center.
