Some neurons in Aplysia have receptors which are much more sensitive to octopamine than any other structurally related compound. Most such receptors mediate a hyperpolarizing conductance increase to K. These responses when considered with the octopamine content of whole ganglia and single neurons strongly suggest that octopamine is a neurotransmitter in Aplysia.
