The somata of molluscan neurones respond with long trains of spikes to steady injected outward current. During such repetitive firing the maximum rate of rise of action potentials usually decreases as a result of inactivation of the transport mechanism for inward current. Significant inactivation of this transport system does not often change the peak level of the action potential (Magura, 1967). According to the investigations of Connor & Stevens (1971 a, c) the neurone's behaviour in the… CONTINUE READING
