Relationship between Contractile and Intracellular Electrical Activities in Canine Colon Muscle Layers
The coordination and the mechanisms underlying the coordination of the mechanical activity of muscle layers of the large bowel are poorly understood (1). During mass movement, coordination between the circular and longitudinal muscle coats is required; at other times such synchronism may not be necessary.
