A preparation of isolated small intestine from the guinea-pig was studied in which reflex responses of the circular muscle were recorded intracellularly when sensory receptors in the mucosa were stimulated mechanically. This preparation was used to examine the properties of mucosa to muscle reflexes that involve non-cholinergic motor neurons innervating the circular muscle. Reproducible stimulation of the mucosa was achieved by stroking with a motor-driven brush. Gentle brush-strokes applied to… CONTINUE READING
