Example text

These cycles have been observed in animals and commented on by a number of physiologists. That such cycles of activity occur also in man is certain. Many persons, and particularly patients with diarrhea, know that there are certain times of the day when calls to defecation are particularly likely to come, and some patients with a tendency to flatulence, heartburn, or belching can almost set the clock by the time of appear­ ance of their distress. It is probable that a certain type of hunger pain comes when it does, not be­ cause the acidity of the stomach has reached a certain point, or because the stomach has emptied, but because the digestive tract has entered one of its pe­ riods of increased activity, irritability and sensitiveness.

He was impressed with the variation in sensitiveness to drugs according to whether a loop was digesting, or empty, or in an active or a quiet period. Hirschberg ( 1 92 8 ) exteriorized a segment of duodenum under the skin without separating it from the rest of the bowel or from its mesentery. The segment was active for periods lasting usually from twenty to twenty-five minutes. The intervals of quiet lasted from one to two hours. Contractions appeared from nineteen to twenty­ one times a minute.

There is a little con­ duction from muscle cell to muscle cell, but it is so slow and its spread is so limited that there is no coordination between the move­ ments of adjacent £ngers of the sponge (Parker, 1 9 19 ) . Next in the scale of development come the animals with nerve nets interposed between the epithelium and the muscles. Such a nerve net in the sea anemone enables the animal, when touched, to contract all over at one time. The stimulus spreads out through the net somewhat as ripples spread from a stone thrown into a pond.
