Cough Update: Urge-to-cough on central neural cough mechanisms
The Urge-to-Cough is a factor of the brain motivation system which usually mediates cognitive responses to cough stimuli. Six stages are present in the cough motivation-to-action system: (1) stimulus, which is the trigger for the neural event; (2) urge, which is the physical need of responding to the stimulus; (3) desire, which is the translation of urge in a central neural targeted goal; (4) action, which is a physical response satisfying the urge-desire; (5) evidence, which is the feedback to the neural system that is on the action; (6) reward, which is sensory system determining if the urge was satisfied.Urge-to-Cough is associated with three fundamental types of coughs, namely, reflex cough, voluntary cough and behavioral cough. Urge-to-Cough with reflex cough can be considered by assessing the sensations produced by a cough stimulus. Neural processes with voluntary cough can be asse...
