In lamprey spinal cord neurons, N-methyl-aspartate (NMA) can elicit tetrodotoxin (TTX)-resistant membrane potential oscillations (10-25 mV), that are of similar frequency to those recorded during NMA-induced fictive locomotion before TTX. The frequency of the oscillations was progressively reduced when increasing the amount of hyperpolarizing DC current. Brief de- or hyperpolarizing pulses gave phase-dependent effects on the duration of the oscillation cycle and rhythm resetting. Periodic… CONTINUE READING
