Rapid temperature increases (1 degree C for 5-10 sec) cause inhibition of firing rate of L. stagnalis pacemakers due to fast activation of the sodium pump. Slow warming to 22 degrees-24 degrees C has an opposite effect; it increases the firing rate. Different responses of the pacemakers to the heating rate explain the features of the microwave effect on the neuron electrical activity.
