In the Retzius cell of the leech, synaptic threshold and three-fold threshold stimulation 1/sec was followed by readjustment of the cell spike activity according to the stimulation rhythm. After cessation of the stimulation the initial bioelectrical activity restores. The membrane potential remains unaltered during the three-fold threshold stimulation.… (More)
Stimulation of the leech abdominal neural chain with electric pulses of 1 imp/sec frequency results in alterations in the activity of the Retzius cells in addition to an increased protein metabolism in the postactivation period. The direct stimulation produces a decrease in the cellular protein metabolism.
