1. In anaesthetized spontaneously breathing cats, the sensory component of the vagal nerves was sectioned at the level of nodose ganglion, using a method described previously (Mei, 1966; Mei & Dussardier, 1966).2. The strength of the Hering-Breuer reflex (inhibitory ratio, i.e. T(1)/T(0)) provided a test for effectiveness of section of vagal afferents, particularly respiratory afferents. On the other hand, by studying the cardiac and bronchomotor effects induced by electrical stimulation of the… CONTINUE READING
