Variations in motility of the small intestine and the effect of impulses in intestinal nerves during stimulation of the mechanoceptors of a loop of small intestine

  • Yu. M. Gal'perin
  • A. D. Volkova


Acute experiments were carried out on cats and dogs. Movements of the small intestine were compared with changes in the potentials recorded from the splanchnic nerve. It was found that an increase of impulses was accompanied by a depression of motor function, and that increased motility was associated with a depression of the impulses. It was also established that stimulation of the mechanoceptors of the small intestine which caused an increased rate of firing of efferent impulses led to the inhibition of motor function. Ganglion block caused by dicoline administration sharply decreased the level of impulsation, caused a marked increase of motor function, and eliminated the response to stimulation of mechanoceptors of the segment of intestine.
