*vagal nerve(itself) =vagal reflex(?)

1. rate(up) -> aff(up) -> eff(up) -> bradycardia

2. rate(down) -> aff(down) -> eff(down) ->tarchycardia

so when ext ear canal stimulation(GSA) could be interpreted like GVA from heart mistakenly.

*cardiac reflex(9->10)

1.distension of carotid body
aff(up) -> eff(up) -> bradycardia

aff(down) -> eff(down) -> tarchycardia

my point is.. aff and eff of 9th and 10th nerve goes together.
am i right?
