Gordon Mitchell, Ph.D., served as an editor for a special issue of the journal Experimental Neurology. Mitchell is director of UF’s Breathing Research and Therapeutics Center (BREATHE Center) and a preeminence professor of neuroscience in the department of physical therapy.
The issue is focused on intermittent hypoxia, a potential treatment for spinal cord injury and multiple neurological disorders, and includes several articles authored or co-authored by UF faculty members and trainees from the BREATHE Center and departments of physical therapy; physiology and functional genomics; and physiological sciences.
- Editorial: Intermittent hypoxia
- Effect of acute intermittent hypoxia on cortico-diaphragmatic conduction in healthy humans
- Hypoxia-induced hypotension elicits adenosine-dependent phrenic long-term facilitation after carotid denervation
- Prolonged acute intermittent hypoxia improves forelimb reach-to-grasp function in a rat model of chronic cervical spinal cord injury
- Serotonergic innervation of respiratory motor nuclei after cervical spinal injury: Impact of intermittent hypoxia
- Intermittent hypoxia and respiratory recovery in pre-clinical rodent models of incomplete cervical spinal cord injury
- Cervical spinal injury compromises caudal spinal tissue oxygenation and undermines acute intermittent hypoxia-induced phrenic long-term facilitation
- Daily acute intermittent hypoxia enhances serotonergic innervation of hypoglossal motor nuclei in rats with and without cervical spinal injury
- Ampakines stimulate phrenic motor output after cervical spinal cord injury
- Acute intermittent hypoxia boosts spinal plasticity in humans with tetraplegia
- Efficacy and time course of acute intermittent hypoxia effects in the upper extremities of people with cervical spinal cord injury
- Single-session effects of acute intermittent hypoxia on breathing function after human spinal cord injury
- Acute intermittent hypoxia and respiratory muscle recruitment in people with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: A preliminary study
- Therapeutic acute intermittent hypoxia: A translational roadmap for spinal cord injury and neuromuscular disease
