Calcium chloride caused depolarization, an increase in the negative afterpotential (NAP) and a decrease in the positive potential and positive afterpotential of the cat's superior cervical ganglion. Initially, potassium chloride caused a decrease in the NAP and positive afterpotential and an increase in the positive potential. During the falling phase of depolarization by potassium, the NAP was increased and the positive potential and positive afterpotential were decreased. In contrast to their…

Non-Nicotinic Chemical Stimulation of Automatic Ganglia

This chapter deals with agents that are able to induce the generation of action potentials in autonomic ganglion cells and/or to facilitate the generation in response to orthodromic or direct electrical stimulation or to chemical stimulation and whose sites of action are not on the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR).
