At the neuromuscular junctions between the motor giant axon and fast flexor muscle fibers in crayfish, stimulation at frequencies of one per minute produces a large decline in the amplitude of excitatory junctional potentials. Recovery (dishabituation) can be brought about by increases in stimulus frequency, which trigger a potentiation process; at still higher frequencies, a second form of depression intervenes. The last process appears to be due to depletion of transmitter; the first probably… CONTINUE READING
