1. The contribution by glial cells to surface recordings has been examined in the optic nerve of the amphibian Necturus maculosus. The method of current injection was employed selectively to alter the membrane potential of glial cells without affecting that of the axons. The resulting changes in potential were recorded simultaneously from the surface of the nerve using the sucrose gap method and intracellularly from a glial cell near the gap.2. The sucrose gap method recorded 40% of the changes… CONTINUE READING
