Comparison of the hyperglycaemic and glycogenolytic responses to catecholamines with those to stimulation of the hepatic sympathetic innervation in the dog.

1. The effects of stimulation of the splanchnic innervation to the adrenal medullae, in dogs with cut hepatic nerves, were compared with those obtained previously in response to splanchnic and hepatic nerve stimulation in adrenalectomized dogs.2. Maximal stimulation of both adrenal medullae via the splanchnic innervation (20 c/s for 9 min), in dogs with cut… (More)
