A technique for demonstrating the pharmacological properties of smooth muscle using the rabbit intestine will be presented. By including a segment of the sympathetic nerve along with a section of the gut, the autonomic control of intestinal smooth muscle activity can be demonstrated through stimulation of the nerve and application of various neurotransmitters. Removal of sections of the intestine along with the sympathetic nerve will be demonstrated as well as a method for recording muscle contraction. This exercise is suitable for general physiology or zoology teaching laboratories.
