• The nature of the system responsible for transmission of excitation from atria to ventricles of the mammalian heart has been a recurrent problem in pl^siology. In 1910 Erlanger demonstrated conclusively that the only normal functional connection between these chambers is the specialized tissue of the bundle of His. However, anatomical evidence showing the occasional presence of other connections composed of muscular tissue has been provided by the studies of Kent, Lev, and Truex, among others… CONTINUE READING
