Respiratory neurobiology has been a lead discipline in the field of neuroscience for almost a century. Despite this, research studies on the fundamental synaptic and cellular processes underlying the generation and modulation of breathing movements suffered a significant decline during the last decade. We still believe that respiratory neurobiology is one of the most exciting and imperative fields of neuroscience. With the first white paper concerned with the central control of breathing, we want to celebrate the global importance of breathing research.
