Responses of cortical cerebral blood flow produced by stimulation of cervical sympathetic trunks are well maintained in aged rats
TLDR
The evidences suggest that the neural control of the cortical CBF by the sympathetic nerves is quite well maintained in aged rats. Expand
REFLEX MODULATION OF GASTRIC AND VESICAL FUNCTION BY ACUPUNCTURE-LIKE STIMULATION IN ANESTHETIZED RATS
TLDR
In anesthetized rats, acupuncture-like stimulation of the abdominal area inhibits the gastric tone and motility, while limb stimulation excites them and Stimulation of the perineal area can inhibit the rhythmic micturition contractions of the urinary bladder. Expand
Somatic afferent regulation of cytotoxic activity of splenic natural killer cells in anesthetized rats.
TLDR
The results indicate that the suppression of cytotoxic activity of NK cells and splenic blood flow following noxious pinching stimulation is a supra-spinal reflex response mediated via the splenic sympathetic nerve. Expand

TLDR
These somato-autonomic reflex responses in various visceral organs following somatic sensory stimulation in animals anesthetized to eliminate emotional factors may be functioning during physical therapy including acupuncture. Expand
Central effects of (5RS, 1'SR)-5-benzyl-3-(3'-morpholino-1'-phenylpropyl)-1,3-oxazolidin-2 -one monofumarate on the function of the bladder and periurethral skeletal muscle in anesthetized rats.
TLDR
The results suggest that NC-1800 modulates the functions of the bladder and urethra by influencing pelvic and pudendal nerve activity via the central nervous system. Expand
Effect of neonatal exposure of 17beta-estradiol and tamoxifen on hepatic CYP3A activity at developmental periods in rats.
TLDR
Exposure of 17beta-estradiol to neonates increased hepatic CYP3A activity during the developmental period, especially in female rats, and a marked sex-difference was observed in hepatics CYP2A activity. Expand
Inhibitory effects of a new, potent, centrally acting muscle relaxant, (4S,5R)-4-(2-methylpropyl)-3-[3-(perhydroazepin-1-yl)propyl]-5- phenyl-1,3-oxazolidin-2-one (NC-1200) on micturition
TLDR
It is concluded that NC- 1200 inhibits the micturition contraction by inhibiting pelvic efferent nerve activity and that this inhibitory effect of NC-1200 originates mainly in the central nervous system. Expand
The role of the spinal cord as a reflex center for the somatically induced reflex responses of splenic sympathetic and natural killer cell activity in anesthetized rats
TLDR
The spinal cord is capable of producing propriospinally the reflex suppression of cytotoxic activity of splenic NK cells via reflex activation of thesplenic sympathetic efferent nerve following stimulation to the abdominal segments whose afferent information enters the spinal cord at the same segments or segments overlapping the splenic sympathetic outflow.
