Coordination of this symphony of activity is largely achieved by rhythmic waves of postsynaptic inhibition occurring during inactive phases, followed by the arrival of postsynaptic excitation.  These arduous but essential studies have provided the outlines of interconnection of respiratory neurons and their complementary interactions.  (C) Membrane potential recording from augmenting inspiratory (Aug I) and augmenting expiratory (Aug E) showing action potentials during the active phase and hyperpolarization during the inactive phase.

Ontological and phylogenic comparisons of the motor act of breathing bear on these questions and appear to provide at least partial answers.  In other words, the potential for both eupneic and gasping motor behaviors coexist in the neonatal mammal; the former is normally expressed and the latter emerges under hypoxic conditions. Suzue reported that a respiratory rhythm is exhibited by the isolated brain stem of the neonatal rat superfused by mock cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in vitro (36,37).  8).

Tadpoles, the larval form of frogs, provide a remarkable opportunity to investigate the ontogeny and, by inference, phylogeny of CO2 chemosensitivity and lung ventilatory rhythmogenesis; to the extent that ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny, the gill and lung ventilation in the developing tadpole provides a “rerun” of that momentous episode in evolution when lung ventilation replaced gill ventilation.  Moreover, the amphibian brain stem is maintained at the animal's normal temperature, 20–22°C.  The characteristics of a fictive lung breath are illustrated in Page 21 Figure 11 Records of fictive gill and lung ventilation recorded from cranial nerves (CN) VII and X in the premetamorphic tadpole (stage 14): Fictive gill ventilation is represented by the high­frequency, low­amplitude bursts in both cranial nerves partially out of phase.
