The effect of calcium ions on the secretion of quanta evoked by an impulse at nerve terminal release sites

A study has been made of the effects of calcium ions on the number of quanta secreted from all the release sites at an amphibian motor nerve terminal recorded with an intracellular microelectrode (m) compared with the number secreted simultaneously from a small number of release sites recorded with an extracellular microelectrode (me). If the endplate… CONTINUE READING
