Variation in Physiological Properties of Crustacean Motor Synapses

  title={Variation in Physiological Properties of Crustacean Motor Synapses},
  author={Harold L. Atwood},
THE properties of individual synapses of the motor axon which innervates the opener (dactylopodite abductor) muscle in the crayfish walking leg have been investigated by Dudel and Kuffler1, who placed an external microelectrode close to the synaptic region to record the flow of current through the post-synaptic muscle fibre membrane during the action of the neuromuscular transmitter2. With low frequencies of stimulation of the motor axon individual synapses showed frequent failures of… CONTINUE READING
