The efferent activity in the chorda tympani nerve of the rat was recorded under neuroleptic analgesia. The results show that this activity decreased when the stomach was distended. The effects caused originated from the stomach and diminished after cutting the vagal nerves. It is suggested that the efferent activity of the chorda tympani nerve can be influenced by hunger and satiety.
