Identification of rhythmically active cells in guinea‐pig stomach
1 When intracellular recordings were made from the antral region of guinea‐pig stomach, cells with different patterns of electrical activity were detected. 2 One group of cells, slow‐wave cells,Expand

Effects of phosphodiesterase inhibitors on spontaneous electrical activity (slow waves) in the guinea‐pig gastric muscle.
1. The effects of the phosphodiesterase inhibitors caffeine, theophylline, isobutylmethylxanthine (IBMX) and rolipram on spontaneous electrical activity (slow waves) were studied in the circularExpand

Studies on the mass receptor potential of the isolated frog retina. II. On the basis of the ionic mechanism.
Abstract The receptor potential of the excised frog retina was isolated by treatment of the tissue with Ringer solutions containing sodium aspartate, and was recorded by means of a pair of externalExpand

The slow wave in the circular muscle of the guinea‐pig stomach.
The slow wave in the circular muscle of guinea‐pig stomach was investigated with the double sucrose‐gap method. 2. The amplitude of the slow wave was reduced by depolarization, and it was increasedExpand

Some properties of the smooth muscle of mouse vas deferens.
1. Contractions of the mouse vas deferens in response to electrical stimulation differ form those recorded form the guinea‐pig vas deferens in that they are abolished by tetrodotoxin. 2. Changes inExpand
