The effects of glutaminergic agonists on neuropile glial cells and on Retzius neurones in the central nervous system (CNS) of the leech, Hirudo medicinalis were investigated using double-barrelled ion-sensitive microelectrodes. In both types of cells, bath-application of L-glutamate (Glu), kainate (Ka) and quisqualate (Qui) elicited substantial membrane depolarizations which were accompanied by increases of the intracellular Na+ activity aiNa and by concomitant decrease of the intracellular K… CONTINUE READING
