region and the bundle of His continues to be an area of great scientific interest and controversy (41-43). For example, current clinical interest associated with the atrioventricular node and the His bundle has focused on their potential stimulation for ultimately improving hemodynamics in patients requiring pacing (13-18) and their use in atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardias (1,2,37,44). In addition to these applied research investigations, there is a need for additional basic scientific investigations to improve the understanding of the fundamental physiology of the heart's conduction system and the mechanisms of cardiac activation in normal and diseased tissues; the findings from these studies will provide a foundation for future therapies.
