We have examined the electrical activity of interneurons within the higher levels of the crayfish olfactory system. In unstimulated isolated crayfish head preparations, local protocerebral interneurons (LPI) of the hemiellipsoid bodies generate periodic, low-frequency membrane depolarizations. The most reasonable explanation for these baseline fluctuations, which were exhibited by all of the LPIs examined and which were reversibly abolished by either tetrodotoxin or low-calcium saline solution… CONTINUE READING
