1. Depolarising and hyperpolarising postsynaptic potentials (PSPs) can be recorded from the soma and integrating segment of the descending contralateral movement detector neuron (DCMD) of the locust,Schistocerca nitens (Fig. 1). 2. These PSPs appear to be chemically mediated and are associated with increases in membrane conductance. The threshold depolarisation of the integrating segment for spike initiation in DCMD is approximately 30 mV; the largest depolarising chemical PSP observed is less… CONTINUE READING
