A program for action potential waveform analysis based on a PC compatible computer is described. Single or averaged action potentials are analyzed by obtaining its first derivative and using criteria which allow automatic measurement of several action potential components, including: depolarization rate, repolarization rate, amplitude, duration, resting(More)
In the isolated inner ear of the axolotl (Ambystoma tigrinum) acid pH decreased and basic pH increased the resting and mechanically evoked spike discharge of semicircular canal afferent neurons. Variations in pH also modified the afferent neuron response to N-methyl-D-aspartic acid (NMDA) acid and to (+/-)-alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazole-4-propionic(More)
There has been increasing interest in team learning processes in recent years. Researchers have investigated the impact of team learning on team effectiveness and analyzed the enabling conditions for the process, but team learning in virtual teams has been largely ignored. This study examined the relationship between team learning and effectiveness in(More)
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate reduced-diaphorase (NADPH-d) histochemistry was investigated in the axolotl (Ambystoma tigrinum) lateral line. Hair cells of neuromast organs of the head skin and neurons of the postotic ganglia showed a significant NADPH-d reaction. Multiunit recording of neuromast afferent activity was also performed. Nitric(More)
AIM This article is a report of a study that examines the relationship between team-level learning and performance in nursing teams, and the role of beliefs about the interpersonal context in this relationship. BACKGROUND Over recent years, there has been an increasing interest in the learning processes of work teams. Researchers have investigated the(More)
Vestibular-afferent neurons innervate hair cells from the sensory epithelia of vestibular end-organs and their action-potential discharge dynamics are driven by linear and angular accelerations of the head. The electrical activity of the vestibular-afferent neurons depends on their intrinsic properties and on the synaptic input from hair cells and from the(More)
Vestibular afferent neurons have been classified on the basis of their spontaneous activity as regular and irregular; this has been attributed to their synaptic input, but it remains to be defined the participation of some intrinsical properties of the afferent neurons in the determination of their discharge pattern. In this work, we have developed tissue(More)
