This book examines the history of experimental study in gastric secretion and digestion. The author identifies the scientific questions that have occupied researchers and discusses the experiments that have led to their solutions. By isolating aspects of experimental study and tracing their evolution over the years, the book provides gastric physiologists and gastroenterologists with a solid understanding of the intellectual history of their field.
