Abstract : The data presented are pertinent for identification of abdominal neural components capable of responding promptly to ionizing radiation. Responses of thirty-seven receptors located at the serosal surface of the small intestine were obtained from anesthetized cats. None of these receptors exhibited spontaneous activity and none of the 21 irradiated receptors, each receiving about 0.5 rad/sec from a 25 mc strontium-yttrium-90 beta source, exhibited neural activity as a consequence of irradiation alone.
