Modulation of synaptic delay during synaptic plasticity
At most synapses, information about the processes underlying transmitter release evoked by a presynaptic action potential has been gathered indirectly, based on characterization of the postsynapticExpand

Organized projection of the goldfish saccular nerve onto the Mauthner cell lateral dendrite
Application of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) to the proximal end of the transected saccular nerve in the goldfish results in uptake by fibers projecting to the distal half of the Mauthner (M) cell'sExpand

Probing the endogenous Ca2+ buffers at the presynaptic terminals of the crayfish neuromuscular junction.
Ca2+ indicators of varying affinity and mobility were pressure injected into the presynaptic axon of the inhibitor of the crayfish neuromuscular junction (NMJ). Fluorescence transients recorded at aExpand

Application of a spike sorting procedure to analyze recordings in the crayfish ventral superficial flexor preparation: A high resolution approach to the study of neuromodulators on axons and synapses.
The crayfish ventral superficial flexor (VSF) is innervated by the ventral branch of the third nerve. This nerve and muscle system is tonic, and is responsible for posture control of the animal. TheExpand
