Two long-lasting discharges of action potentials were recorded from a buccal cell of the pond snail, respectively, before and after superfusing the preparation with low-calcium solution. The corresponding sequences of interspike intervals were then analysed by the nonlinear prediction methods. The results yield evidence of a small but clear nonlinearity only in the second of analysed tachograms. This finding is evaluated and discussed.
