The role of intrinsic nerves in the control of migrating myoelectric complexes (MMCs) was studied in seven conscious dogs, each implanted with a set of eight bipolar Trimel wire electrodes. Local areas, 3-5 cm long, were perfused close intra-arterially via an exteriorized heparinized Silastic cannula. Experiments consisted of giving bolus injections of atropine (20-50 micrograms), hexamethonium (20 mg), and tetrodotoxin (TTX; 3-30 micrograms) via the catheter at varying periods of time with… CONTINUE READING
