Regional differences in the response of the isolated sino-atrial node of the rabbit to vagal stimulation.

Abstract

1. The effects of brief postganglionic vagal nerve stimulation on electrical activity in different regions of the rabbit sino-atrial node and surrounding atrial muscle were recorded. 2. At the centre of the node (the leading pacemaker site), the brief stimulation resulted in a large hyperpolarization followed by a depolarization and a shortening of the… (More)
