1. Our experiments were performed to assess the quantitative role of the transient potassium current, IA, in determining the cycle frequency and phasing of neurons in the network generating the pyloric motor rhythm in the stomatogastric ganglion of the spiny lobster, Panulirus interruptus. We used 4-aminopyridine (4-AP) to reduce IA and recorded the effects of this treatment on cell activity. 2. In the intact circuit with an actively cycling pyloric rhythm, 4-AP had three major effects on the… CONTINUE READING
