Dilatation of the Pupil in the Cat via the Oculomotor Nerve

Dilatation of the Pupil in the Cat via the Oculomotor Nerve Abstract A massive sympathetic discharge is largely responsible for the maximal pupillary dilatation that occurs during cerebral ischemia. In addition, it is suggested that a discharge mediated by the ciliary ganglion may also produce pupillary dilatation, at least under experimental conditions. References 1.

Abstract

Abstract A massive sympathetic discharge is largely responsible for the maximal pupillary dilatation that occurs during cerebral ischemia. In addition, it is suggested that a discharge mediated by the ciliary ganglion may also produce pupillary dilatation, at least under experimental conditions. References 1.
