    A method to measure simultaneously gastric evacuation and small bowel propulsion in the rat is presented. The value of the method in testing drug action is described. The effect of an antidiarrhoeal agent, diphenoxylate, was analysed and it was shown that it retarded small bowel propulsion without influencing gastric evacuation.
