Respiratory Neurobiology: Physiology and Clinical Disorders, Part Two, Volume 189 is one of two volumes on the neurology of breathing. This volume focuses on pathologies attributable to abnormalities of the neural control of breathing, breathing problems that may occur in neurological diseases, and the neurological complications of respiratory diseases, while volume one focuses on the neurophysiology of breathing.
