INTRACELLULAR RECORDING FROM PHOTORECEPTOR NEURONS IN THE EYES OF A NUDIBRANCH MOLLUSC (HERMISSENDA CRASSICORNIS),
STANFORD UNIV CALIF
Intracellular records obtained from retinal neurons of nudibranch eyes show both excitation and inhibition of impulse discharge upon appropriate photic stimulation, as well as the slow potential changes associated with these events. Evidence is presented that the action potentials originate at some distance from the soma and do not invade it in a retrograde fashion. The presence of synaptic inhibition is demonstrated, but the additional phenomenon of primary inhibition observed in other molluscs has not been established. Author
