Colonic myoelectric activity was determined using a mucosal clip electrode in normal human subjects, in the basal state and following the administration of prostigmin, pentagastrin, cholecystokinin, or secretin. Slow-wave activity was present 49±3.0% of the recording time and occurred at two frequencies, 6.5±0.1 cycles/min and 3.5±0.1 cycles/min, in the rectum. Spike potentials were infrequent in the basal state. Prostigmin, pentagastrin, or cholecystokinin did not affect the slow-wave activity… CONTINUE READING
