Postsynaptic currents (PSCs) at the giant synapse between Mauthner and giant fibers of the hatchetfish Gasteropelecus were studied under voltage clamp. This axo-axonic synapse lies in the central nervous system beneath the floor of the 4th ventricle where electrodes can be closely positioned both pre- and postsynaptically. Transmission is nicotonic… CONTINUE READING
