Direct Access of Ions to the Squid Stellate Ganglion Giant Synapse by Aortic Perfusion: Effects of Calcium-free Medium, Lanthanum, and Cadmium.


The giant synapse in the squid stellate ganglion has served as a model in the understanding of normal synaptic transmission, but has not been used extensively in the study of changes in external ion concentrations or pharmacological agents. This anomaly is due primarily to the substantial diffusion barrier that exists between the synapse and the bathing… (More)
