Abstract:

Aplysia neurons show Na, Cl- and K conductances to different neurotransmitters. Similarities in receptors mediating the responses to one neurotransmitter and in the same ionic conductance elicited by different neurotransmitters are found. This suggests that one receptor may activate any of three ionophores which are common to different receptors.
