Basic Information

NeuronBank ID: Tri0002586 Abbreviation: Pl 10

Identification

"Pl 10 injected with 5,6-carboxyfluorescein, showing its size and location in the lateral region of the dorsal pleural ganglion." from Frost et al., 2003.

* Anatomy: Pl 10 has a 70 micron diameter cell body on the dorsal surface of the pleural ganglion near the P1 neuron.

  • Electrophysiology: Pl 10 receives monosynaptic EPSPs from S-cells and makes inhibitory connections to DSI.
