Central pattern generators (CPGs) are biological neural networks that produce rhythmic patterned outputs without sensory feedback.[1][2] CPGs have been shown to produce rhythmic outputs resembling normal "rhythmic motor pattern production" even in isolation from motor and sensory feedback from limbs and other muscle targets.[1][2] To be classified as a rhythmic generator, a CPG requires: 1.

Polyvagal Theory

Polyvagal theory outlines the structure and function of the two distinct branches of the vagus, both of which originate in the medulla.[1] More specifically, each branch is associated with a different adaptive behavioral strategy, both of which are inhibitory in nature via the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). The vagal system is in opposition to the sympathetic-adrenal system, which is involved in mobilization behaviors. According to polyvagal theory, these opposing systems are phylogenetically arranged.[1] The Dorsal Vagal Complex[edit] Amazon.
