The role of the vagus nerve in the control of intestinal transport was investigated in the ferret jejunum in vivo. Fluid transport was measured in an isolated 10-cm segment of jejunum by means of a single-pass perfusion technique with radioactive markers introduced into the perfusion fluid and the bloodstream of the animal. Transmural potential difference (PD) and intraluminal pressure in the perfused jejunal loop were also monitored. Vagal stimulation (20 Hz, 20 V, and 0.5 ms for 1 min… CONTINUE READING
