Serotonin and substance P: Synergy or competition in the control of breathing.Auton Neurosci. 2020 Feb 26; 225:102658.AN
Numerous neurotransmitters identified in the central nervous system play role in ventilatory control. This mini-review focuses on the respiratory effects of two neurotransmitters: serotonin (5-HT) and substance P (SP). We discuss their co-localization in medullary raphe nuclei, expression of proper receptors within the specific regions of respiratory related structures and contribution to respiratory rhythmogenesis.
