Abstract

Considerable effort in many laboratories has gone into describing the afferent nerve subtypes that initiate cough, and the ionic mechanisms the activation and modulation of these nerves. In this brief overview, we have attempted to summarize some of what is understood in these areas. In addition, we have tried to highlight many of the important basic questions that remain to be answered.
