1. Intracellular recordings were made from the cell bodies and axons of giant reticulospinal neurones (Müller cells) of the lamprey and the effects of a variety of putative neurotransmitters tested. Bath-applied acetylcholine, carbamylcholine, norepinephrine, dopamine, histamine and serotonin were without effect. Glycine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) hyperpolarized and reduced the input resistance of cell bodies but had no effect on the membrane conductance of axons. 2. The threshold dose… CONTINUE READING
