1. The electrical responses of the smooth muscle cells of the rabbit aorta to both extracellular and intracellular stimulation were studied using the partitioned chamber and Wheatstone bridge method.2. No spontaneous electrical activity was recorded when the tissue was soaked in either isotonic or hypertonic Krebs solutions, and strong depolarizing currents also failed to trigger action potentials in either solution.3. The circular muscle of the aorta has cable properties. Mean values in… CONTINUE READING
