Translation of H.P. Bowditch's paper: "Über die Eigenthümlichkeiten der Reizbarkeit, welche die Muskelfasern des Herzens zeigen" (On the pecularities of excitability which the fibres of cardiac muscle show)
in: M.I.M. Noble and W.A. Seed (eds.): The Interval-Force Relationship of the Heart, Cambridge University Press 1992, pp. 3-30.

"This volume is the first to look in detail at the important relationship, initially studied in 1871 by Bowditch, between the strength of a heart beat and the interval between beats. This neglected topic is now seen to provide a key to unlock the mysteries of excitation-contraction coupling and has important implications in advancing our understanding of the functioning of the heart. The book draws together the work and experience of leading international research workers in this field. It also includes an English translation of the original German paper by Bowditch describing his experimental study of this topic. Collectively, the contributors illuminate the underlying mechanisms involved in interval-force events, and their expression in both isolated muscle and the intact heart. They also speculate on further avenues of research which will help to reconcile some of the remaining controversies."
