Exogenous serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT) induced inhibitory effects in Helisoma trivolvis buccal neuron 5 (B5), which included a hyperpolarization of the membrane potential, a reduction in input resistance and a decrease in the stimulus-evoked spiking rate. The reversal potential for the 5-HT-induced hyperpolarization was -88.7 mV, suggesting the… (More)
