The study of ethanol (EtOH) action is interesting because of its clinical relevance and for the insights it provides into structure-function relationships of excitable membranes. This paper describes the concentration dependencies of various parameters of four currents in Aplysia cells. ICa is the most sensitive of the currents studied. There was a(More)
1. Experiments were performed to determine the mechanisms by which ethanol (EtOH) decreases the amplitude of voltage-dependent inward currents through calcium channels in Aplysia neurons. Voltage-clamp protocols used conditioning prepulses of varying amplitude, duration, and frequency, to examine the relationship between prior activity of the channel and(More)
