Optical studies on the kinetics of the sodium pump in mammalian non-myelinated nerve fibres.


1. A study has been made of the changes in the fluorescence of desheathed rabbit cervical vagus nerves that occur during and after electrical stimulation of its non-myelinated fibres.2. Stimulation for 5 sec at 30 shocks/sec produces a maximal decrease, of about 1% of the resting fluorescence. Stimulation for less than 0.5 sec fails to produce responses… (More)
