The role of gastrointestinal mechanoreceptors and intestinal chemoreceptors in the genesis of vago-vagal reflexes was assessed by recording single vagal efferent fibre discharge in the urethane-anaesthetized ferret during procedures known to activate discrete populations of gastrointestinal afferent fibres. Distension of the stomach, duodenum and jejunum was used to activate mechanoreceptors while perfusion of the intestinal loops with various chemical solutions was used to activate mucosal… CONTINUE READING
