Discussion of subcortical regulation of visceral functions. Intestinal peristalsis and finally intussusception result from bilateral extirpation of the frontal cortex. 2. Discussion of the cerebral cortex and its association with regulation of visceral activities. 3. Responses of the intestine to stimulation of the frontal lobes and various other parts of the cortex. Peristalsis and finally intussusception were produced experimentally by mild faradic stimulation of the supraprecentral sulcus. When the vagi were cut, no such reaction could be produced. 4.
