Abstract

The junctional resistance at septa of the crayfish lateral giant axon is inversely related to temperature with a Q10 of about 3 over the range from 5° to 20°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.
