A procedure is described for performing patch-clamp recordings on satellite glial cells kept in place within the nervous ganglia in the mollusc Helix. Glial cell properties were deduced from whole-cell and cell-attached recordings. The glial membrane was found to contain densely packed inwardly rectifying K+ channels. Activation of the neurones, under either current-clamp or voltage-clamp conditions, depolarized the glial cell layer wrapped around the neurones and induced a delayed persistent… CONTINUE READING
