The non-spiking neurons 151 are present as bilateral pairs in each midbody ganglion of the leech nervous system and they are electrically coupled to several motorneurons. Intracellular recordings were used to investigate how these neurons process input from the mechanosensory P neurons in isolated ganglia. Induction of spike trains (15 Hz) in single P cells evoked responses that combined depolarizing and hyperpolarizing phases in cells 151. The phasic depolarizations, transmitted through… CONTINUE READING
