  • 1. Xenopus laevis embryos stop swimming in response to pressure on the cement gland. This behaviour and 'fictive' stopping are blocked by bicuculline (10 mumol 1(-1)), tubocurarine (110 mumol 1(-1)) and kynurenic acid (0.5 mmol 1(-1)). 2. Intracellular recordings from spinal neurones active during swimming have shown that pressure on the cement gland evokes compound, chloride-dependent inhibitory postsynaptic potentials (IPSPs). These are blocked by bicuculline, tubocurarine and kynurenic acid… CONTINUE READING
