BACKGROUND AND AIMS Slow waves play an important role in controlling the frequency and propagation of gastrointestinal contractions. However, mechanisms involved in the modulation of slow wave activity in vivo are still unclear. In this study, the roles of different neurotransmitters in the regulation of gastrointestinal slow waves were investigated in conscious dogs. METHODS Female dogs implanted with electrodes in the stomach and the small bowel were used in a seven-session study… CONTINUE READING
