For instance, during wakefulness breathing can be controlled in a wide variety of circumstances ranging from athletes trying to breathe optimally to obtain better performances, to people taking a deep breath before facing a difficult task. Hiccups, however, elude conscious, upper brain control. Unlike the central control, the peripheral hiccup reflex arc is largely, but not fully clarified. In the adult the afferent pathways of the reflex arc consist principally of the vagus or tenth cranial nerve, the phrenic nerve, the so-called thoracic sympathetic chain, a series of nerves leaving the spinal cord between T6 and T12 (the 6th and the 12th thoracic vertebrae) and innervating intercostal muscles, and by the pharyngeal plexus, a network of nerves connected with the pharynx [9, 10].

1 Hiccups (Hic): developmental trends. Hiccups are particularly pronounced between 10 and 13 weeks’ gestation, reaching a peak at 11 weeks. From 14 weeks onwards hiccups follows a regular trend Fig. 2 Thrust of the fetal body provoked by hiccups. Fetus at 13 weeks’ gestation. Hiccups provokes a small thrust of the fetal body. Only the back is moved slightly upwards; the head and the legs remain in contact with the uterine surface.
