To determine if electrical stimulation of autonomic nerves could excite nonadrenergic inhibitory motor pathways in the guinea pig respiratory system in vivo, we studied the effects of electrical stimulation of the cervical vagi and sympathetic nerve trunks on pressure changes (Pp) within an isolated, fluid-filled cervical tracheal segment which reflected changes in trachealis muscle tone. We preserved the innervation and circulation of the segment as evidenced by a rise in Pp with vagus nerve stimulation and a fall in Pp with intravenous isoproterenol.

Usage data is cumulative from June 2022 through June 2023.
Usage information is collected from two different sources: this site (JCI) and Pubmed Central (PMC). JCI information (compiled daily) shows human readership based on methods we employ to screen out robotic usage. PMC information (aggregated monthly) is also similarly screened of robotic usage.
Various methods are used to distinguish robotic usage. For example, Google automatically scans articles to add to its search index and identifies itself as robotic; other services might not clearly identify themselves as robotic, or they are new or unknown as robotic. Because this activity can be misinterpreted as human readership, data may be re-processed periodically to reflect an improved understanding of robotic activity. Because of these factors, readers should consider usage information illustrative but subject to change.
