Temperature-dependence of resistance at an electrotonic synapse. Academic Article uri icon


  • The junctional resistance at septa of the crayfish lateral giant axon is inversely related to temperature with a Q(1l), of about 3 over the range from 5 degrees to 20 degrees C. Nonjunctional axonal membrane is much less affected. Resistance changes occur rapidly with temperature changes. No correlates in ultrastructure of the synapses have been found.
