Simultaneous measurements were made of the intracellular activities of potassium and lithium in sheep heart Purkinje fibres using ion-sensitive microelectrodes. On exposure of the fibres to lithium, the intracellular activity of lithium rose, with an equivalent decrease in the level of intracellular potassium.
