The vagal lobe of goldfish (Carassius auratus) is a laminated structure in which primary gustatory afferents terminate in a stereotypical pattern. Because the afferent fibers enter and distribute within the lobe in the transverse plane, the structure appeared suitable for in vitro slice electrophysiology. Slices were cut on a vibratome at 400-800 microns thickness and placed in a fresh water teleost Ringer's solution. Following a recovery period, clear population responses were recorded… CONTINUE READING
