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)
A pressure increase up to 101 ata led to 17.8% and 50% increase of the electrical potential difference and short-circuited current, resp., as well as to a 22% decrease of electrical resistance in the isolated frog skin. The changes were due to a high hydrostatic pressure and the increase of the solution temperature by 2.8 +/- 0.14 degrees C. At 100 ata, the(More)
