12] By following pranayama for few weeks, the bulbopontine
complex is adjusted to a new pattern of breathing which is slower than its basal rhythm causing decrease in respiratory rate.
6] We believe that during daily practice of pranayama the basic activity of the bulbopontine
complex is modified in such a way as to slow down its rhythm.
Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed T1-low and T2-high bulbopontine
and cerebellar lesions around the fourth ventricle (Figure).
