The technic of single-cell recording of action potentials serves as the basis for this book on electrophysiology of the heart. Although the method is only 10 years old, a significant literature has accumulated. The present text presents the results of this work, including the significant contributions by the authors and others. A good deal of the data has not been previously published.
After the initial chapters on recording technics and excitation and conduction, succeeding chapters are devoted to the action potentials of the atrium, ventricle, sinoatrial node, atrioventricular node, Purkinje fibers and excitability. The last chapter, "General Electrophysiology of the
