Abstract

Electrogastric signals have been successfully measured both intraluminally and cutaneously. although it has been claimed by several researchers that the propagation direction of the electrogastric activities cannot be observed from cutaneous recordings, it is the aim of the paper to show that it is feasible. The reason why the propagation direction has never been observed from cutaneous recordings is that the reported methods for the abdominal measurements are not adequate. In the paper it is pointed out that the stomach should be localised before the measurement and the electrodes should be attached along the longitudinal axis of the stomach.
