Besides its well-known actions on sensory afferents, eugenol also affects general excitability of the nervous system, but the mechanisms involved in the recent effect, especially through modulation of ion channels, have received much less attention. In this study, we studied the effects of eugenol on the excitability of central neurons of land snail Caucasotachea atrolabiata and tried to elucidate the underlying ionic mechanisms. The lower concentration of eugenol (0.5mM) reversibly reduced the… CONTINUE READING
