Notably, pulmonary C-fibers in dogs may be unresponsive to histamine, while bronchial C-fibers are activated by histamine. Whether similar physiological distinctions between bronchial and pulmonary afferent C-fibers can be defined in other species is not known. In guinea pigs, histamine appears to have no effect on bronchopulmonary C-fibers. Undem and colleagues (56,57) have recently described C-fiber subtypes innervating the intrapulmonary airways and lungs of mice and guinea pigs. In guinea pigs, C-fiber subtypes may be distinguished based on their ganglionic origin and sites of termination in the airways.

Afferent nerves innervating other viscera as well as somatosensory nerves innervating the chest wall, diaphragm, and abdominal musculature also likely play a less essential but important accessory role in regulating cough. In this chapter the classes of vagal afferent nerves innervating the airways and their role in regulating the cough reflex will be defined. Classification of Airway Afferent Nerve Subtypes Airway afferent nerve subtypes are abundant in the airway mucosa and in the airway wall and can be differentiated based on their physicochemical sensitivity, adaptation to sustained lung inflation, neurochemistry, origin, myelination, conduction velocity, and sites of termination in the airways (Fig.
