A fast transient outward current in the rat sympathetic neurone studied under voltage-clamp conditions.


Post-ganglionic neurones of the isolated rat superior cervical ganglion were voltage clamped at 37 degrees C using separate intracellular voltage and current micro-electrodes. Control experiments in current clamp suggested that the neurone is electrotonically compact, the soma and the proximal dendritic membranes being under good spatial voltage uniformity… (More)
