Restraint stress delays gastric emptying via uncoordinated motility pattern in rats. Central oxytocin has anxiolytic effects and attenuates the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis in response to stress and facilitates stress-induced delayed gastric emptying. However, the role of central oxytocin in regulating gastric motility remains unknown. Postprandial gastric motility was recorded via a strain-gauge transducer, implanted on the antrum in Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats. To investigate… CONTINUE READING
