1. The input properties and the response to stretch of a coxal receptor, the S fibre of the crab Scylla serrata, were studied using two and three intracellular microelectrodes. 2. In the relaxed receptor the transmembrane potential ranged from about -60 to -70 mV, and the input resistance, RT, from 1 to 3 M omega. The input IV relationship, studied by injecting slow-rising current ramps, was not linear either in the hyperpolarizing or in the depolarizing quadrants. 3. Low values of RT and… CONTINUE READING
