Abstract

A range of developments in methodology for studying digestive physiology including comparative anatomy, fistulas and cannulas, imaging, electromyography, and tracers are reviewed. This gives a methodological background to the teaching of digestive physiology, with the opportunity for critical appraisal of the collection and analysis of second-hand data. Exercises for gathering first-hand data on the use of tracers, analysing second hand data on tracers, and interpretation of comparative anatomy of bird stomachs are given as possible curriculum extensions in this field.
