Abstract

1. A flow of watery nasal secretion can be induced in the anaesthetized cat either by electrical stimulation of the brain stem or by the simpler procedure of stimulating the cut peripheral end of the Vidian nerve. In both instances the rate of flow of secretion was dependent on the stimulation frequency. Because brain stem stimulation caused an increase in arterial blood pressure, nasal secretion was evoked in subsequent experiments by Vidian nerve stimulation.
