The pharmacology of an insect ganglion: actions of carbamylcholine and acetylcholine.

Abstract

1. Methods for presenting dose-response data for the ganglionic actions of cholinergic agonists (e.g. carbamylcholine) are compared, using the mannitol-gap technique for electrophysiological recording of synaptic events at the cercal nerve, giant fibre synapse of the sixth abdominal ganglion of the cockroach Periplaneta americana. 2. At concentrations… (More)
