This research program on the effect of hyperbar gases on isolated nerve cells of Aplysia has involved the study and construction of a pressure chamber. The chamber is mainly composed of a cylindrical tube, with 2 glass portholes allowing the illumination and observation of the biological preparations, and 2 moveable doors with a quickclosing system which permit micromanipulation. Electrical connections assure all the various remote controls. Two taps, purge and stop, a manometer and a safety valve complete the equipment of the chamber. The equipment meets the requirements of microelectrophysiological techniques and can submit the preparations to constant pressures of as much as 6 bars.
