1 The data obtained suggest that the non-adrenergic inhibitory effect of metenkephalin on intestinal contractions was the result of its depressing action on motor cholinergic neurons, whereas the inhibition of intestinal contractile activity with histamine and bradykinin resulted from their activating action on cholinergic interneurons which activate non-adrenergic inhibitory neurons through nicotinic cholinoceptors.
