Abstract

In 27 decerebrate cats under various experimental conditions, we studied the effects of programmed premature ventricular contractions on the impulse activity of preganglionic sympathetic fibres isolated from the third left thoracic ramus. Single extrastimuli increased the sympathetic discharge by 319 (SEM 43)% [from 10.3 (1.7) to 36 (3.7) imp·s -1,p-1, p
