Efferent sympathetic nervous control of rectal motility in the cat.

Abstract

The sympathetic nervous control of rectal motility was studied in anesthetized cats. Division of the sympathetic nerves, i.e. the hypogastric nerves and the lumbar colonic nerves and alpha-adrenergic blockade reduced rectal tone indicating that these nerves are tonically active. Efferent electrical stimulation of the nerves at high intensities caused an… (More)
