1. Comparisons were made between the kinetics and steady-state properties of the sodium conductance changes and of the sodium gating currents, in the squid giant axon perfused with caesium fluoride and maintained at a high membrane holding potential. The conductance measurements were made with reduced external sodium and as much electrical compensation as possible, in order to minimize errors caused by the series resistance. 2. After an initial delay of 10-150 musec whose size was a function of… CONTINUE READING
