Experiment details include methodology, handwritten results, and tracing paper graphs regarding Anoxia on Smooth Muscle experiments. The experiments begin on 4 September 1956 (experiment AN1) and last until 20 November 1956 (experiments AN17a,b,&c). There are then blank pages for experiments AN18 (10 December 1956) until AN27, then full details begin again from AN28a&b (10 January 1957) until AN25a&b (30 January 1957).
