integrated input from peripheral stretch and chemoreceptors and communicates this information to ventral respiratory center

associated with the respiratory center and are sensitive to changes in the blood concentration of co2 and h+ atoms
within carotid artery, aorttic arch, sense changes in blood-oxygen concentration
higher brain controls
acting through the hypothalamus, and limbic system, strong emotions and pain sending those to the respiratory center to modify rate and depth
characterized by spasms by the smooth muscle in bronichole tubes that result in partial or complete closure of air passageways
