An examination of the cellular properties and synaptic outputs of mechanoafferent neurons found on the ventrocaudal surface of the cerebral ganglion of Aplysia indicated that the cerebral mechanoafferent (CM) neurons are a heterogeneous population of cells. Based on changes in action potential duration in response to bath applications of 5-HT in the presence of TEA, CM neurons could be divided into 2 broad classes: mechanoafferents whose spikes broaden in response to 5-HT (CM-SB neurons) and… CONTINUE READING
