  • Abstract 1. 1. The fibers of the spiracular closing muscle of the giant silk moths, Hyalophora cecropia and Telea polyphemeus , spontaneously generate action potentials and contract. 2. 2. The spontaneous electrical activity of a slow depolarization by a pacemaker potential which usually leads to a spike of 20 to 30 mV. 3. 3. When the partial pressure of CO 2 is increased, the fibers hyperpolarize and the spontaneous activity is slowed or stops. 4. 4. The pacemaker potential ends when the… CONTINUE READING
