ABSTRACT
The influence of the nonmuscular gastric tissues on the work function of incorporated smooth muscle was investigated in. vitro. Intact strips and strips split at the level of submucosa were exposed to various drugs under aerobic and under anaerobic conditions. It was found that the noncontractile cellular elements exert a controlling effect on the work function of smooth muscle. The effect cannot be ascribed to known chemical mediators. It is suggested that the controlling effect of adjacent tissue on the work function of smooth muscle is executed through an electromagnetic phenomenon, here called polarization.

    Inflammation suppresses intestinal motility, which secondarily induces abnormal growth of intestinal flora. Disturbance of this flora plays a role in the pathogenesis of mucosal inflammation, which in turn aggravates the intestinal dysmotility. Therefore, it is important to know the mechanism of...

The ex-vivo measurements of vasoactivity (wire and pressure myographs) have some inherent difficulties in the characterization of pharmacodynamics and biomechanics. Here, we introduce a novel isovolumic myograph...
