Bursting pacemaker neurons of Tritonia and Aplysia were studied in voltage-clamp experiments to determine the ionic requirements of the slow outward tail current. This current is important for terminating bursts and hyperpolarizing the neuron during the interval between bursts and therefore contributes to the timing of pacemaker activity. A method for rapid… CONTINUE READING
