Magnetoencephalographic (MEG) applications in auditory evoked field (AEF) recordings have demonstrated that both tonotopicity and amplitopicity exist in the auditory cortex. The present study was conducted to determine whether previously reported characteristics of the AEF could be identified in multichannel cortical auditory evoked potential N1e (e.g., the(More)
The objective of the present experiments was to determine the specific receptor subtype through which dopamine (DA) receptor agonists relax the lower esophageal sphincter in vitro. Opossum lower esophageal sphincter smooth muscle strips were placed in oxygenated Krebs' solution containing propranolol and cocaine. The tissues were placed at a tension that(More)
Lower esophageal sphincter (LES) pressure was measured in anesthetized cats during electrical stimulation of the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus (DMV) and nucleus ambiguus (NA). Stimulation parameters were varied to determine maximal changes in LES pressure and upper gastrointestinal motor responses. LES pressure decreased significantly during DMV and NA(More)
