How does the vagus nerve connect to the liver? How does the vagus nerve relate to hepatic glycogen stores?

Parasympathetic nervous system => rest and digest, so enhanced glycogen synthesis in the liver (via muscarinic receptors)

Il dort. Quoique le sort fût pour lui bien étrange,
Il vivait. Il mourut quand il n'eut plus son ange;
La chose simplement d'elle-même arriva,
Comme la nuit se fait lorsque le jour s'en va.

The path (http://www.cvpharmac...-Gi protein.gif) applies to the heart. Does it apply to the liver (in humans)?

A quick web search didn't give anything conclusive on which muscarinic receptor is involved in this process in liver, but M2 is actually typical for heart... The M recptors have got different signal transduction pathways, see here http://en.wikipedia....tor#M1_receptor
