Electrical response of the lingual epithelium to stimulation of the gustatory nerve in frogs

Abstract

Electrical stimulation of the gustatory nerve is accompanied by the development of a positive electrical potential on the outer surface of the tongue (relative to its inner layers). The amplitude and steepness of rise of this potential increase whereas the latent period decreases with an increase in the frequency of stimulation. The response arises in the… (More)
