We analyzed the kinetics and pharmacology of EPSCs in two kinds of neurons in the embryonic avian ciliary ganglion. Whole-cell voltage-clamp recordings revealed that the singly innervated ciliary neurons had large-amplitude (1.5-8.0 nA) EPSCs that could be classified according to the kinetics of their falling phases. Most of the neurons responded with an EPSC the falling phase of which followed a double exponential time course with time constants of approximately 1 and 10 msec. The EPSCs of the… CONTINUE READING
