THE FUNCTION OF THE NERVES It must not be forgotten, however, that in the more complex ani­ mals, in addition to the highest type of synaptic system one finds not only the primitive nerve nets, as in the bladder, arteries, and perhaps intestine, but chemical transmitters and perhaps also a rem­ nant of the original protoplasmic transmission from cell to cell. Similarly, in a modern city, with all its telephones, one still finds the original messenger boy. The thing to be kept in mind is that the main function of the nervous system in all its stages of development ap­ pears to be that of expediting conduction.

Luckily, strong mechanisms are always ready to stop rushes before they go too far. Curiously, no one seems to have noticed that even if the law of the intestine were true for all types of stimulation, all conditions, and all species of animal, the problem of the polarity of the bowel would still be as much of a puzzle as it was before. The question would still remain : Why does a stimulus produce contraction above and relaxa­ tion below? How does the bowel know always which end is orad and which caudad ?

EFFECT OF SLEEP Helm, Kramer, MacDonald and lngelfinger ( 1 947- 1 948 ) sum­ marized the small literature on the effect of sleep on the bowel and stated that Cannon ( 1 90 1 - 1 9 02 ) , Barcroft and Robinson ( 1 929 ) , and Douglas and Mann ( 1 93 9 ) , hadn't noticed much difference between the activity by day and by night. They, however, found a decided drop in the activity of the small bowel in 1 2 of 1 6 human subjects when the person fell asleep. They had a recording balloon in the bowel.
