Stimulation of the phasic (fast) motor axon of the isolated crayfish claw preparation at relatively low frequency (0.1 Hz) leads to depression of the excitatory junction potential (EJP) recorded from single muscle fibers. When the same stimulation is delivered following depression of the EJP at a higher frequency (5 Hz), a potentiated EJP appears, which is more resistant to low frequency depression. The potentiation appears to be analogous to "long-term facilitation" observed after stimulation… CONTINUE READING
