Patch-clamp electrophysiological methods were used on dissociated rat nodose neurons maintained in culture to determine whether responses to cholecystokinin (CCK) were associated with capsaicin-resistant (A type) or capsaicin-sensitive (C type) neurons. Nodose neurons were classified as A or C type on the basis of the characteristics of the Na+ current, a… CONTINUE READING
