The role of the cerebral cortex in the behavioral control of breathing. Afferent mechanisms involved in the transduction of respiratory mechanical events, the transmission of this afferent signal to higher brain centers, the activation of cerebral cortical neurons by respiratory afferents and the role of this afferent signal in the generation of respiratory sensations. The mechanisms mediating respiratory sensations in asthmatic patients. The reason for respiratory perceptual deficits in patients with life-threatening asthma.
