It is shown that the main function of the nerves is to expedite conduction and not to run everything. These points are emphasized not with any desire to start a childish controversy over the relative values of the different parts of the body, but to stimulate research workers to study the bowel itself and not always its nerve supply. The extrinsic nerves serve useful purposes, and there is no ques­ tion about the fact that the bowel functions better when they are intact. CHAPTER III SOME THEORIES THAT HAVE BEEN AD­ VANCED TO EXPLAIN THE POLARITY OF THE SMALL BOWEL I SHOWED IN CHAPTER I THAT THE BOWEL IS "PO­ iarized" in that it transmits waves and fluids and solids more easily in one direction than in the other, and I stated my belief that the most important question to be discussed in this book is : What determines this polarization?

A second, and the motion pictures show that it often takes about six seconds to pass a certain point. Motion pictures show also that after the wave passes, the bowel remains contracted for from ten to twenty-five seconds, during which time, if it keeps going, the column must advance for a distance varying between 60 and 1 5 0 cm. Actually, it may go even farther than this because, by the time some of the rushes reach the ileum, they are traveling as fast as 20 cm. a second. Under these circum­ stances it can easily be seen that once a wave is started in one direc­ tion, it must continue in that direction so long as the bowel is irritable enough to respond locally to the presence of the column of fluid and so long as the resistance ahead does not become too great.

Long by crushing the wall with a hemostat. This leaves the sections held together by narrow bands of dead tissue. Under such circumstances there can be no preparatory relaxation of the bowel ahead of the rush, and the conclusion must be that the moving column of fluid, with the help of the "polarity" of each short segment, serves to keep the wave going. This is the only form of conduction possible under the circumstances. Most observers have not seen any definite change in intestinal activity during sleep but a quieting influence has been observed in the cases of some men and women.
