In six adult rams, chronic experiments were performed to assess the role of fasting, feeding, phase of migrating myoelectric complex (MMC) and anticholinergic drugs in antral myoelectric activity. Accordingly, animals underwent surgical implantation of five bipolar electrodes in to the antrum duodenum and jejunum for continuous myoelectric activity recordings. Normal control spike burst amplitude in non-fasted sheep during phase 2b MMC and during feeding was 103±19 vs. 155±10[iV (p
