Interdigestive gastric contraction-related phenomena were studied in four healthy conscious dogs by running-spectrum analysis of signals derived from the abdominal surface. When groups of contractions occur irregularly spaced in time, low frequencies (in the range below 0.085 Hz) show up in the power spectra of the electrogastrograms. It has been hypothesized that prolonged electrical control activity (ECA) intervals shown to coincide with irregular contractions are related in some way to these low frequencies. This hypothesis was investigated in detail. Whereas a certain degree of correlation was demonstrated between ECA interval variations, contractile activity, and the presence of low frequencies in the spectra obtained from electrogastrograms recorded during interdigestive migrating complexes, a more pronounced correlation between these phenomena was found during "minute rhythms." It was concluded that the presence of lower frequencies ranging from the normal gastric one to about 0.01 Hz in the running-spectrum representation of electrogastrograms recorded in fasting dogs is indicative of strong antral contractions and that the mechanism through which this is brought about involves prolongation of ECA intervals associated with these contractions.
