Membrane potential oscillations can be induced in molluscan neurones under a variety of artificial conditions. In the so-called 'burster' neurones oscillations are generated even in isolated cells. A likely mechanism for 'bursting' involves the following ionic currents: 1. A transient inward current carried by Na+ and Ca2+. This current is responsible for the upstroke of the action potentials. 2. A delayed outward current carried by K+. This current is voltage-sensitive and is responsible for… CONTINUE READING
