1. Whole-cell current-clamp recordings were made from neurons in the rostral nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS) in an in vitro brain slice preparation in rats. On the basis of previous investigations, these neurons are believed to be involved with processing of gustatory as well as somatosensory information. 2. Rostral NTS neurons had a mean resting membrane potential of -47 mV. The mean input resistance was 336 M omega, and by fitting a double exponential function the membrane time constant had… CONTINUE READING
