1. Experimental studies in animals suggest the existence of thermoreceptors in the gastrointestinal tract. Our aim was to investigate the distribution and specificity of upper gut thermoreceptors in humans. 2. In healthy subjects, thermal stimulation of the stomach (n = 8) and the small intestine (n = 6) was produced by means of a thermostat, which recirculates water at adjusted temperatures through an ultrathin intraluminal bag. Progressively warm (42, 47 and 52 degrees C) and cold (32, 22 and… CONTINUE READING
