The changes in the concentration of glucagon and insulin in arterial plasma which occur in response to splanchnic nerve stimulation have been investigated in adrenalectomized dogs, cats and sheep. 2. In dogs, stimulation of both splanchnic nerves at a low frequency (2-0 c/s) for 10 min produced a small but statistically significant increase in plasma glucagon concentration and appeared to inhibit the release of insulin. Stimulation at a higher frequency (10-0 c/s) produced a much greater… CONTINUE READING
