The isolated rabbit sinus node was partly divided into two parts by a cut in the middle portion. Microelectrode recording near the bridge connecting the two parts revealed an interference between action potentials from the two parts. Comparison of microelectrode recordings from the two parts taken near the bridge suggested that an induced peculiar rhythm change in one part was probably induced by the electrotonic effects of the action potentials of the other part. To prove this, a subthreshold… CONTINUE READING
