Summary

Within one day after the formation of the linear heart an adult type of electrocardiogram (ECG) can be monitored, reflecting the development of coordinated activation of the heart. The possibility that during evolution and ontogenesis of the heart, this development is achieved by localized growth of cardiac chambers rather than of a conduction system is discussed here.
