1. The present study was designed to examine the interaction between sympathetic and parasympathetic influences on blood flow in oro-facial areas such as lower lip, palate and submandibular gland (SMG) and in the common carotid artery (CCA) in anaesthetized cats. 2. Section of the ipsilateral superior cervical sympathetic trunk (CST) increased the basal CCA blood flow significantly. The control level with the nerve intact was comparable with that seen at 0.5-1 Hz CST stimulation, suggesting a… CONTINUE READING
