The serotonergic Retzius neurons of the leech midbody ganglia respond in a complex manner to pressure pulses of acetylcholine (ACh) applied onto their soma with a fast depolarization followed by a slower hyperpolarization and an additional delayed long-lasting depolarization. The delayed depolarization is the subject of the present study. The delayed depolarization could be elicited by long (> 1 s) ACh pressure pulses or by short pulses (10 ms) of carbachol, nicotine and DMPP, but not by… CONTINUE READING
