Extracellular K+ Accumulation in the Spinal Cord

  title={Extracellular K+ Accumulation in the Spinal Cord},
  author={Eva Sykov{\'a}},
Ionic changes in limited intra- and extracellular spaces are the consequence of the generation of every biopotential. A wide range of techniques has been used in recent years to show that normal neuronal activity causes K+ to accumulate in the narrow clefts separating the cellular elements. However, it was not until the K+ — selective microelectrodes with liquid ion exchanger — Corning code 477317 had been developed by J.L. Walker in 1971 that it has been possible to measure the dynamic changes… CONTINUE READING
