Researchers identify neural networks within the vagus nerve responsible for breathing.


A precision genetic analysis has yielded a surprising result, a network of neurons control breathing with other specifically functioned neuronal networks within the vagus nerve. Among these function-specific network of neurons, two types are dedicated to two specific respiratory functions.  The data findings suggest new ways of treating and diagnosing clinical conditions related to the vagus nerve.  The opensource study
