The control of breathing is commonly viewed as being a "brainstem affair". Over the years, studies have periodically brought new data that hinted at the need to revisit this notion, yet not much has changed. In this issue of Acta Physiologica, Lopes et al (2014) demonstrate how the periaqueductal gray contributes to the hypoxic ventilatory response. As this chemoreflex is a focus point for many physiologists, the impact of this study on the way we view neural control of respiratory homeostasis may be significant.
