Membrane electrical properties of motoneurons innervating the striated muscle of the external urethral and anal sphincters were examined in the decerebrate cat. Both populations of motoneurons had similar electrical properties (mean pooled values; conduction velocity 48 m/s, membrane time constant 3.3 ms, afterhyperpolarization (AHP) duration 97 ms, membrane input resistance 2.2 M omega, rheobase 3.3 nA, and threshold voltage 8.1 mV). Although a portion of cells in both subpopulations of… CONTINUE READING
