*10uL Aspartate produced the bottom curve, showing very little recover *5uL Glutamate gave the next curve *10uL Glutamate gave the third curve *20uL Glutamate gave the best recovery, reaching the highest level
These results show a dose dependent voltage change. The initial drop in voltage is probably due to the addition of a dilute solution of an organic ion. However it is not particularly dose dependent with respect to actual volume. It may well be related to how quickly the ions spread away from the probe. The overall response of adding glutamate is a rise in voltage, and is related to amount of glutamate. The 20uL addition rose to above the starting value after about 1 minute, and continued to rise. -N.b. The value of the oscilloscope reading is not actual output of the cells as the output has been through the amplifier and the probe also has an amplifier in it.
