Nutrients entering the small intestine trigger a variety of neural and endocrine reflexes that involve specific afferents, efferents and interneurons, many of which are located within the enteric nervous system (ENS). We hypothesized that intestinal nutrient stimuli might activate specific subpopulations of these neurons. To test this hypothesis, we utilized immunohistochemical detection of nuclear c-fos expression in the myenteric and submucosal plexuses of the rat small intestine following… CONTINUE READING
