Relations between adjacent units of the sub-esophageal ganglion ofHelix pomatia
- 12 Downloads
There is a correlation in the mean frequencies of discharge in adjacent neurons of the sub-esophageal ganglion ofHelix pomatia.
A hig probability of discharge of one cell in the mid-interval following discharge of the other is demonstrated.
With tactile stimulation this tendency to reciprocity is diminished and spikes occur in a more random relation to each other.
The phenomena described can be explained by the assumption that lateral inhibition takes place between pacemaker neurons possessing a common input.
