Superposition of excitatory and inhibitory influences in the retina of Limulus: effect of delayed inhibition.


In an optic nerve fiber of the compound eye of the horseshoe crab, Limulus, the time course of a train of nerve impulses discharged in response to illumination reflects the interplay of excitatory and inhibitory influences. Responses to sinusoidally modulated excitation and inhibition, as a function of frequency, were measured separately and in combination… (More)
