Project: Influence of neuropeptides on the motility of the stomack fundus with respect to the non-adrenergic non-cholinergic innervation.

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
The aim is to study whether one of the 3 neuropeptides (VIPn neurotensin and somatostatin) could be the neurotransmitter of the non-adrenergic non-cholinergic innervation of the stomach fundus. The search for this still unknown neurotransmitter is important because this non-adrenergic non-cholinergic innervation mediates the gastric receptive relaxation and the gastric relaxation during vomiting.
