Advances in Physiological Sciences, Volume 28: Saliva and Salivation covers the proceedings of the Saliva and Salivation satellite symposium, which is a pre-congress meeting connected to the 28th International Congress of Physiological Sciences. The book discusses a wide variety of studies that are relevant to the function of salivary system. This variety includes denervation as a method to produce a prolonged stimulation of salivary glands and reflex activation of the preganglionic fibers innervating the submandibular gland. This text also explains reflex discharge recorded from rat submandibular ganglion cells in vivo and effects of acetylcholine and adrenergic agonist on potassium transport in the salivary glands in vitro. This monograph will be of great interest to professionals and researchers, including dentists and zoologists, whose work concerns oral physiology.
