Abstract

Membrane properties of identified leech neurons with non-spiking somata were studied after axotomy. Two distinct procedures were used: the section of ganglionic roots in vivo and the isolation of cell somata in culture. The results indicated that axotomized neurons progressively developed the excitability of somatic membrane, both in vivo and in culture.
