Abstract:

Fabrication of two additional bitometers was completed and the final calibration of these instruments was begun. A new computer program was developed that essentially incorporates all the desirable features of the old program. In addition, the new program gives a continuous estimate of how the repellency of test compounds differs from that of controls. Thus the data are handled much more efficiently. Work with the crayfish intestine preparation was continued in efforts to test the gamma-aminobutyric acid hypothesis in a physiological system.
