Abstract

Unilateral vagotomies were performed on frogs to see if the diving reflex would be altered and if subsequent sprouting would correct this alteration. It was found that a unilateral vagotomy had no effect on diving bradycardia which occurred in a normal manner after surgery. Diving bradycardia was also found to be free of sympathetic influence.
