Neurons of the motor nerve net of the jellyfish Cyanea are connected by chemical synapses that, from their ultrastructure, appear to be bidirectional chemical synapses. These synapses were examined physiologically, by recording intracellularly from synaptically connected cells, with the whole cell configuration of the patch-clamp recording technique. Subthreshold depolarizations produced neither small voltage responses indicative of electrical coupling, nor unitary depolarizations suggestive of… CONTINUE READING
