    Clin Perinatol 33:883-914; abstract x. 2006
    ..Research focused on this group of infants will not only further our understanding of brainstem maturation during this high risk period, but will help develop focused plans for their management...

    Robert A Darnall
    Department of Pediatrics, Dartmouth Medical School, Lebanon, NH 03756, USA
    Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 302:R551-60. 2012
    ..Arousal habituation may contribute to sudden infant death syndrome, which is associated with MR serotonergic and GABAergic receptor dysfunction...

    Robert A Darnall
    Department of Physiology, Dartmouth Medical School, Lebanon, New Hampshire 03756, USA
    J Neurosci 25:8322-32. 2005
    ..Abnormalities in the function of these neurons may alter sleep homeostasis and contribute to the etiology of SIDS...

    R A Darnall
    Department of Pediatrics, Dartmouth School of Medicine, Lebanon, New Hampshire, USA
    J Appl Physiol 109:1686-96. 2010
    ..We conclude that exposure to repeated episodes of hypoxia can cause progressive blunting of arousal, which is reversible by altering the exposure times to hypoxia and the period of recovery between hypoxia exposures...
  6. ncbi request reprint Prolongation of the laryngeal chemoreflex after inhibition of the rostral ventral medulla in piglets: a role in SIDS?
    Liesbeth Van Der Velde
    Departments of Physiology, Medicine, and Pediatrics, Dartmouth Medical School, Lebanon, New Hampshire 03756, USA
    J Appl Physiol 94:1883-95. 2003
    ..We conclude that the RVM provides a tonic facilitatory drive to ventilation that limits the duration of the LCR, and loss of this drive may contribute to the SIDS when combined with stimuli that inhibit respiration...

  1. Spontaneous Arousals in "CHIME" Infants at Risk for SIDS
    ROBERT DARNALL; Fiscal Year: 2006
    ..Finally, we will examine the relationships among the level of arousal, post-conceptional age, sleep state, and other infant behaviors such as feeding that are also associated with changes in autonomic activity. ..
