In anesthetized cats, electrical stimulation of the dorsal motor nucleus area within 0(-)+1.5 mm rostral to ohex elicited obvious changes in electrical activity of pylorus. These findings suggest the existence of topically organized parasympathetic preganglionic cell groups within the DMN--"the stomach area", which exert excitatory and inhibitory influences on the stomach smooth muscles.
