Nervous Control of Breathing

The mechanism of respiration regulation is Nervous Control of Breathing very complex. It is controlled by cerebral cortex. In the medulla oblongata there is respiratory centre. In the respiratory centre both excitation and inhibition alternate (чередоваться). The specific stimulus of the respiratory centre is carbon dioxide. As soon as the blood accumulates a certain amount of carbon dioxide, the Nervous Control of Breathing respiratory centre becomes excited. It transmits impulses through the spinal cord to the respiratory muscles; they contract and an inhalation takes place. When the respiratory centre is inhibited the transmission of impulses to the respiratory muscle decreases, the muscles relax and an exhalation starts.

During inhalation the Nervous Control of Breathing lungs expand. While arising in the receptors the excitationis transmitted along the vagus nerve to the respiratory centre and inhibits it, and an exhalation results.

Thus respiration is induced by nervous impulses; an inhalation stimulates an exhalation, and the exhalation brings about an accumulation of carbon dioxide which stimulates Nervous Control of Breathing an inhalation.
