Propagation of slow waves in the guinea-pig gastric antrum

Hirst, George; Garcia-Londono, Pilar; Edwards, Frank


Intracellular recordings were made from the circular layer of the intact muscular wall of the guinea-pig gastric antrum in preparations where much of the corpus remained attached. When two electrodes were positioned parallel to and near to the greater curvature, slow waves were first detected at the oral site and subsequently at the anal site: The oro-anal conduction velocity was found to be 2.5mm s-1M. When one electrode was positioned near the greater curvature and the other at a...[Show more]
