  • 1. The actions of ether and methoxyflurane on the evoked potentials of in vitro preparations of the guinea‐pig olfactory cortex were studied. Following stimulation of the lateral olfactory tract (l.o.t.) evoked potentials could be recorded from the cortical surface; these potentials consisted of an initial wave (the compound action potential of the l.o.t.) followed by a negative field potential which was associated with the synchronous excitation of many superficial excitatory synapses… CONTINUE READING
