The cerebellum modulates different nociceptive phenomena and influences visceral functions. This study shows cerebellar modulation of an abdominal reflex elicited by a visceral noxious stimulus (colorectal distension, CRD). The intensity of the reflex was measured by electromyographic (EMG) recording from the rectus abdominus muscle, and the cerebellar cortex (vermis, lobule VIII), the fastigial nucleus, or the dentate nucleus was stimulated using d,l-homocysteic acid (0.1 M, 1 μl).
