Electrocyte physiology: I. Temperature dependence of membrane excitability.


Some membrane characteristics of the isolated electrocyte of the Sachs organ are presented as function of temperature. Excitability curves are shown for electrocytes kept in standard saline at different temperatures. It is shown that rheobase varies directly with temperature. Apparently membrane resistance varies from 4.9 omega . cm2at 20 degrees C to 11.4… (More)
