Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Effect of extracellularly applied oxytocin was investigated on snail neurons in cell attached single channel recording configuration. OXT activated Cl-dependent inward and outward current with amplitude of 1.4 and 1.6 pA, respectively. OXT have affected the ACh-activated current decreasing or increasing the mean interburst interval of single channel activity.
