Local anoxia of a small region of cat sciatic nerves causes a block of fast axoplasmic transport in vitro. Activity becomes dammed up at the face of the anoxic region, and falls off rapidly distally just inside the anoxic region. Such blocks were reversible if they were removed within 1 hr. Earlier studies had given evidence that fast axoplasmic transport… (More)
