3 Generation and Control of Colorectal Motility Smooth muscle cells within the circular and longitudinal colorectal muscle layers are arranged in bundles that are connected by gap junctions. Bundles fuse at many points and thereby function as a syncytium. The resting membrane potential of the smooth muscle cells undergoes small undulating changes called slow waves. These are generated by the pacemaker cells (interstitial cells of Cajal) . The slow waves do not cause contractions, but they do influence the frequency of spike potentials.

1 Colonic Motility Contractions are either phasic or tonic . Phasic colonic contractions last a few seconds and cause elevated intraluminal pressure [16, 26]. They are single, nonpropagating contractions or mass contractions. Single, nonpropagating contractions occur very frequently and include shorter or longer segments of the colon [8, 31]. The main function of these contractions is to mix the colonic luminal content, thereby promoting absorption, or to move the colonic content over a small distance .
