Block of rapid depolarization induced by in vitro energy depletion of rat dorsal vagal motoneurones

Martin, Rosemary


1. The ionic mechanisms contributing to the rapid depolarization (RD) induced by in vitro ischaemia have been studied in dorsal vagal motoneurones (DVMs) of brainstem slices. Compared with CA1 hippocampal neurones, RD of DVMs was slower, generally occurred from a more depolarized membrane potential and was accompanied by smaller increases in [K+]0. 2. RD was not induced by elevation of [K+]0 to values measured around DVMs during in vitro ischaemia or by a combination of raised [K+]0 and 2-5 μM...[Show more]
