Nick Spencer is a Professor in the College of Medicine and Public Health, at Flinders University in South Australia. His research is largely centered around the neural control mechanisms that regulate the gastrointestinal tract. In 2016, Nick was elected President of the Australasian Neurogastroenterology & Motility Association (ANGMA).
In this webinar, Professor Spencer will demonstrate how to do real-time, spatio-temporal mapping along the isolated segment of gut, combined with multi-site electrophysiological recordings. This new approach allows one to correlate the electrical activities along an organ with intraluminal pressure and movement and provides powerful insights into mechanisms underlying propagation of electrical and mechanical activities along largely hollow organs.
