Abstract

The computer-assisted learning program Intestinal Motility was produced to help preclinical medical students to understand the variety of ways in which drugs or endogenous mediators can alter intestinal muscle movements and thereby influence propulsion of luminal contents. It simulates experiments actually carried out on a rat colon preparation, but the principles apply equally well to the small intestine and to the stomach and oesophagus of rat or other species. It can be used alone as a learning aid or can be used to support practical class teaching.
