Abstract

New findings
What is the topic of this review?
This brief review describes the work of Professor John Coote and colleagues at the University of Birmingham, which has contributed to understanding of the role of muscle afferent involvement in cardiorespiratory control in exercise.
What advances does it highlight?
The seminal findings of John Coote's early work are highlighted, as well as more recent developments in the field, especially the role of muscle afferents in the control of human ventilation during exercise.
Through the work of John Coote, research into the role of muscle afferent involvement in cardiorespiratory control has had strong links with Birmingham since the late 1960s. This brief review gives an historical background to John's early work and how his research and mentorship of colleagues continues to have a profound influence on the field today.
