The effect of insulin hypoglycemia on the contraction of the nictitating membrane of the cat during stimulation of preganglionic sympathetic nerve fibers

  • N. A. Emel'ianov
Physiology

Summary

Acute experiments were performed on cats with insulin hypoglycemia. It was established that the threshold of stimulation of preganglionic nerve fibers passing to the superior cervical ganglion (tested by the contraction of the nictitating membrane) does not show any significant change.

The contraction of the nictiating membrane remains unchanged in submaximal stimulation of the preganglionic nerve fibers. Adrenalin injection also has no effect on its contraction.
