An understanding of the neural control of lower oesophageal sphincter (LOS) relaxation is clinically relevant because transient LOS relaxations (TLOSRs) are a mechanism of acid reflux into the oesophagus. Preganglionic motor neurones innervating the LOS are localized in the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus (DMV). Based on a single study in cats, it is now widely accepted that these neurones are functionally organized into two separate populations, such that stimulation of the caudal and… CONTINUE READING
