Rapid Heat Production Associated with Excitation of Electric Organs of the Electric Eel

Tasaki, I.; Byrne, P. M.

By constructing a new type of thermal detector, rapid production of heat was demonstrated during the rising phase of the action potential of the eel electric organs evoked by direct electric stimulation. Following the indirect (synapse-mediated) action potential of the organs, the existence of very large and variable production of heat of unknown origin was revealed.
