- n. Plural form of photocurrent.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
As discussed above, electrophysiological measurements may only indirectly reflect underlying photopigment absorbance spectra, but we also note that there can be deviations from predicted spectra even when based on isolated photoreceptor photocurrents: for example recordings from amphibian cones have revealed narrower than predicted spectra
However, photocurrents diminished upon repeated stimulation and limited the number of action potential bursts that could be elicited.
