[Changes in the jaw-opening reflex during anesthesia resulting from auricular electrostimulation]
The effect of auricular electrostimulation on the jaw opening reflex and affective behaviour of adult cats was studied in chronic experiments during stimulation of the lip. Auricular electrostimulation was shown to facilitate the jaw opening reflex and to inhibit the affective component of the pain.
