Abstract

The pre-Bötzinger complex (preBötC) is a central pattern generator within the ventrolateral medulla oblongata's ventral respiratory group that is important for the generation of respiratory rhythm. Activation of adenosine A(1) receptors (A(1)R) depresses preBötC rhythmogenesis. Although it remains unclear whether A(1)R activation is important for organisms in a normal metabolic state, A(1)R activation is important to the response of the preBötC to metabolic stress, such as hypoxia. This study examined mechanisms linking A(1)R activation to depression of preBötC rhythmogenesis in medullary slice and island preparations from neonatal mice.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 September 2012.
All research outputs
#816,629
of 3,629,051 outputs
Outputs from BMC Neuroscience
#124
of 568 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#24,279
of 94,014 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Neuroscience
#1
of 11 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 3,629,051 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 63rd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 568 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.7. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 71% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 94,014 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 73% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 11 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 90% of its contemporaries.
