Interactions among chemical and electrical synapses regulate the patterns of electrical activity of vertebrate and invertebrate neurons. In this investigation we studied how electrical coupling influences the integration of excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs). Pairs of Retzius neurons of the leech are coupled by a nonrectifying electrical synapse by which chemically induced synaptic currents flow from one neuron to the other. Results from electrophysiology and modeling suggest that… CONTINUE READING
