  • The existence of receptors in the abdominal and pelvic viscera of mammals has long been known from the reflex responses which can be elicited by a variety of experimental procedures (Ranson, 1921; Irving, McSwiney & Suffolk, 1937). Hurst (1911) made an extensive clinical study of the sensibility of the alimentary canal, and concluded that a form of 'muscle-sense' existed in all parts of the alimentary canal, but did not further investigate the receptors. Afferent impulses from gastric and… CONTINUE READING
