Following brief electrical stimulation of a pleuroabdominal connective nerve, the clusters of peptidergic bag cell neurons of Aplysia generate a long-lasting (or approximately 30 min) synchronous afterdischarge. In a normal seawater medium, the afterdischarge comprises an early phase of rapid firing (2-6 Hz) lasting for less than one minute, followed by a second, prolonged phase of lowering firing rate (less than 0.5 Hz). We have found that the transition from the first, rapid-firing phase to… CONTINUE READING
