1. Slow and fast contractions, as well as the corresponding excitatory junction potentials (ejp's) were recorded from the closer muscle (adductor of the dactylopodite) of the third walking legs, subjected to temperatures ranging from +6 °C to +32 °C. In addition, the effect of temperature on resting potential and resting tension was studied, and in several preparations we investigated the effect of temperature on the efficacy of the inhibitory axon. The experimental animals had been acclimated… CONTINUE READING
