Currnetly there's a on-going research project that may be
related to what you refereed to as diaphragm pacing.
You may wish to send Dr. Mortimer (Dir. of Applied Neural Control),
who is the primary investigator of the project, an e-mail (sorry,
I don't have his address at hand.) A good friend of mine, Harish Aiyar
< hxa14 at po.cwru.edu > and his colleague Brian Schmit < bds at po.cwru.edu >
are the two grad. students working on the project. I suggest that you
send them a note to learn about the specifics of what they are doing.
