We describe the role of endogenous Protein Kinase A (PKA) signalling in vivo in shaping the population activity of respiratory neurons that regulate respiratory rhythm and motor patterns. We identify two key functions of PKA activity: (i) potentiating inspiratory drive currents of prebötzinger neurons and phrenic premotor neurons that regulate the intensity of phrenic nerve discharge, and (ii) potentiating glycinergic transmission that restrains the frequency of rhythmic respiratory activity.
