Autonomic Effect After Muscarinic Hyper-Activity

Overview

In this laboratory procedure, the video demonstration seeks to teach on the effect of muscarinic agonists and its parasympathetic effects in rats. This resources should guide you to be able to perform such procedure in the laboratory and observe the lab animals for the results.

 

Thus, in a succeful procedure, the effects of lacrimation, salivation, defaecation, urination, pilo-erection, rhinorrhea, sweating and labored breathing would be observed.

Introduction

 

This experiment demonstrates the effect of muscarinic agonists and its parasympathetic effects such as lacrimation (shedding of red tears), salivation, defaecation, urination pilo-erection, rhinorrhea, sweating and labored breathing.

 

Objectives

 

To observe muscarinic hyper-activity with the use of some muscarinic agonists.
