Ghrelin augments afferent response to distension in rat isolated jejunum.


Ghrelin has been shown to decrease firing of gastric vagal afferents at doses comparable with circulating levels in the fasted state. This raises the possibility that ghrelin may have a hormonal action on other vagal afferent populations. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of ghrelin on jejunal afferent activity; including responses to… (More)
