... in the threshold for axon stimulation when citral, carvone or limonene were added to the bath. Nonetheless, the synapse is likely to be particularly sensitive to inhibiting VG Ca 2+ and/or Na + channels due to the Ca 2+ cooperativity of transmitter release and nonlinear relationship between Ca 2+ influx...

When an extra Retzius cell is implanted into cultured ganglia, synapses develop between the host and the implanted neurone. Such synapses generally show lower coupling ratios or PSP fluctuations.
