Midgut Peristalsis at a wild type junction region. The movie shows the peristalsis within the anterior midgut junction region over the course of 50 seconds (total run time ~1.5 minute). The movie has been looped three times, and the rate increased to 4 frames per second from 2. The region is noted by the remains of the muscular tethers which are projecting from the midgut to the left. Six peristaltic contractions can be observed during this time in this region of the gut.
