1. The characteristics of a mechanoreceptor of the small intestinal region of the cat were studied by recording potentials from single afferent fibres in filaments dissected from mesenteric nerves. Forty-six fibres were examined in detail. Each of these was excited by light mechanical stimulation of the mesentery or small bowel, but none responded to sinusoidal vibration at frequencies above 100/sec. A ;spontaneous' discharge was regularly observed and it appeared to be related to peristaltic… CONTINUE READING
