Spino-vagal nonadrenergic inhibition of gastric motility elicited by abdominal nociceptive stimulation in the cat.


Reflex inhibition of gastric motility in response to intestinal nociception and afferent nerve stimulation was studied in anesthetized cats. Mechanical stimulation of the small and large intestines elicited marked gastric inhibition, which was imitated by direct electrical stimulation of mesenteric or splanchnic afferents. The reflex response was resistant… (More)
