A method of recording the gastric electrical activity in man

A method of recording the gastric electrical activity in man with electrodes introduced perorally into the gastric cavity and applied by suction against the mucosa is described. This method was utilized in 40 adult subjects in good health and who were fasted 12 hr prior to the investigation; they were placed in the supine position. The gastric antrum was specially studied. The pacesetter potential and the fast spiking activities occurring during the contractions were recorded.
