 Title    Light and D ark Adaptation of Crayfish Visual Cells Depending on Extracellular Calcium Concentration  
 Abstract    Lowering of extracellular Ca2+-concentration from 14 x 10-3 M to ca. 10~ 6 M (using 1 mM ethyleneglycol bis (/?-aminoethylether) -N,N'-tetraacetic acid (E G T A)) results in weaker light adap­ tation by a 2 s light exposure and faster dark adaptation (half time 45 + 1%) of crayfish visual cells.

 Abstract    Intracellular recordings o f angular sensitivity from the photoreceptors o f Aeschnid dragonflies (Hemianax papuensis and Aeschna brevistyla) are used to determine the magnitude and time course o f acuity changes follow ­ ing alterations o f the state o f light or dark adaptation. Acuity is defined on the basis o f the acceptance angle, A q (the half-width o f the angular-sensitivity function). The maximally light-adapted value o f A q is half the dark-adapted value, indicating greater acuity during light adaptation. Following a change from light to dark adaptation, A q increases slowly, requiring at least 3 min to reach its dark-adapted value. In contrast, the reverse change (dark to light) induces a rapid reduction o f A q , and at maximal adapting luminances, this reduction takes place in less than 1 0 sec.
