Action potential and sodium current in the slowly and rapidly adapting stretch receptor neurons of the crayfish (Astacus astacus).

Abstract

Action potentials (APs) and sodium current from the slowly and the rapidly adapting stretch receptor neurons in the crayfish (Astacus astacus) were recorded with a two microelectrode voltage- and current-clamp technique. In the rapidly adapting neuron the APs had a duration of 3.2 +/- 0.2 ms (means +/- SE) and an amplitude of 55.2 +/- 1.5 mV. In the slowly… (More)
