- Neuromuscular transmission on the reboundP Drapeau
Center for Research in Neuroscience, Montreal General Hospital Research Institute, McGill University, Quebec, Canada
Receptors Channels 7:491-6. 2001..Together these findings indicate the need for a fundamental revision of current thinking about neuromuscular transmission at many levels, including channel structure, function and pharmacology...
- Limits to the development of fast neuromuscular transmission in zebrafishP Drapeau
Centre for Research in Neuroscience, Montreal General Hospital Research Institute, Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec H3G 1A4, Canada
J Neurophysiol 86:2951-6. 2001....
- Development of the locomotor network in zebrafishPierre Drapeau
McGill Centre for Research in Neuroscience and Department of Biology, McGill University, Que, Montreal, Canada
Prog Neurobiol 68:85-111. 2002....
- In vivo recording from identifiable neurons of the locomotor network in the developing zebrafishP Drapeau
Centre for Research in Neuroscience, Montreal General Hospital Research Institute, and Department of Neurology, McGill University, Quebec, Canada
J Neurosci Methods 88:1-13. 1999..It is thus feasible to study in vivo the properties of identifiable neurons of the developing locomotor network in the zebrafish, including their synaptic activity, firing patterns and interconnections...
- Synchronization of an embryonic network of identified spinal interneurons solely by electrical couplingL Saint-Amant
Centre for Research in Neuroscience, Montreal General Hospital Research Institute, , , Canada H3G 1A4
Neuron 31:1035-46. 2001..Thus, the earliest spinal central pattern generator consists of synchronously active, electrically coupled neurons...
- Synaptic drive to motoneurons during fictive swimming in the developing zebrafishR R Buss
Centre for Research in Neuroscience, Montreal General Hospital Research Institute, Department of Neurology, McGill University, Montreal, Quebec H3G 1A4, Canada
J Neurophysiol 86:197-210. 2001..We conclude that a rhythmic glutamatergic synaptic drive underlies swimming and that a tonic, shunting glycinergic input acts to more closely match the membrane time constant to the fast synaptic drive...
- Development of spontaneous glycinergic currents in the Mauthner neuron of the zebrafish embryoD W Ali
Center for Research in Neuroscience, McGill University and Montreal General Hospital Research Institute, Montreal, Quebec H3G 1A4, Canada
J Neurophysiol 84:1726-36. 2000..Our data suggest that glycinergic mIPSCs result from the activation of a mixture of fast and slow GlyR subtypes, the properties and proportion of which determine the decay of the synaptic events in the embryos...
- Landing patterns of phloem- and wood-feeding Coleoptera on black spruce of different physiological and decay statesM Saint-Germain
Centre for Forest Research, Department of Biological Sciences, Universite du Quebec a Montreal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada H3C 3P8
Environ Entomol 38:797-802. 2009....
- "In vivo" monitoring of neuronal network activity in zebrafish by two-photon Ca(2+) imagingE Brustein
McGill Centre for Research in Neuroscience and Department of Biology, McGill University, H3G 1A4, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Pflugers Arch 446:766-73. 2003..Frequently, this activity occurred synchronously among many neurons in the network. In conclusion, the new approach permits a reliable analysis with single-cell resolution of the functional organisation of developing neuronal networks...
- Targeted "knockdown" of channel expression in vivo with an antisense morpholino oligonucleotideL J N Brent
Centre for Research in Neuroscience and Departments of Biology and of Neurology and Neurosurgery, McGill University, 1650 Cedar Street, Montreal, Quebec, Canada H3G 1A4
Neuroscience 114:275-8. 2002..Because of their stability and specificity, morpholinos should prove useful for targeted deletion of transmitter receptors and channels in developing zebrafish and possibly in other preparations...
- High-affinity zinc potentiation of inhibitory postsynaptic glycinergic currents in the zebrafish hindbrainH Suwa
Institut des Neurosciences, , 75252 Paris Cedex 05, France
J Neurophysiol 85:912-25. 2001..Zinc plus tricine or tricine alone did not change the coefficient of variation ( approximately 0.85) of the mIPSC amplitude distributions. These results suggest that postsynaptic GlyRs are not saturated after the release of one vesicle...
