Example text

The reversal potential is about þ 3 mV. ’’ Stimulation of an inhibitory pathway produced a slight hyperpolarization with a reversal potential of about À 80 mV, an inhibitory postsynaptic potential (IPSP). By using a double-barreled microelectrode to ionophoresce ions into the motoneuron cell body, they showed that the reversal potential shifted to a more depolarized level after the Cl À concentration was elevated, so the ion channel opened during inhibition is permeable to Cl À . Hitherto they had thought that this inhibitory pathway was monosynaptic, but now they found an inhibitory interneuron, so the same cell was not both excitatory and inhibitory.

DOPA put reserpine-treated rabbits back on their feet in no time. When they measured the noradrenaline in these brains they were astonished to find it still was low. Reserpine is antagonized by monoamine oxidase inhibitors, so they reasoned that DOPA must be converted to an amine. The first step in the pathway between DOPA and noradrenaline is dopamine. Dopamine had never seemed of interest because it has little effect on tissues innervated by the autonomic nervous system. They developed a method to measure dopamine.

The permeabilities are little changed by low temperature, which suggests that the ions flow through channels in the membrane. The Na þ channel is blocked reversibly by local anesthetics and irreversibly by toxins such as tetrodotoxin, from the Japanese puffer fish, Spheroides rubripes [57]. The toxins were used to label the protein of channels for isolation and eventual cloning. Toxins that target the K þ channel were discovered much later. 24 SOUP, NOT SPARKS After the war Eccles wrote several influential reviews on the mechanism of synaptic transmission [58].
