The action of helium (up to 101 abs. atm.) under high pressure on ionic currents through the cellular membrane was studied in experiments on isolated neurons of a gastropod. A method of intracellular dialysis which is new for physiological investigations under hyperbaric conditions was used. A substantial decrease in the inward (sodium) current with(More)
The effect of high ambient pressure on the inward and outward currents in the membrane of the snail isolated neuron was studied. A significant inhibition of the inward (sodium) current occurred at 101 ata. No significant modification of the outward (potassium) current was found. The data obtained corroborates the hypothesis of inhibitory effect of high(More)
