Convergence of gastric and hepatic information in the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS) was investigated by single-pulse electrical stimulation of the hepatic and the gastric branches of the vagus. Facilitation induced by both stimuli occurred most often in responses of neurons in the NTS, indicating convergence of information there. In a second experiment using gastric distension and portal infusion of glucose to analyze such convergence, activation by gastric distension and suppression by… CONTINUE READING
