Possible sources of excitatory synaptic input to the serotonergic metacerebral cell (MCC) were determined by stimulating various neurons in the cerebral ganglion. Firing of the previously identified histaminergic neuron C2 was found to produce synaptic input to the MCC. The synaptic input consists of fast excitatory-inhibitory synaptic potentials on a background of a slow EPSP. The slow EPSP appears to be monosynaptic and chemically mediated since it persists in a solution of high divalent… CONTINUE READING
