Pedal 3 is a neuron in Hermissenda.
- soma size 150-200 microns
- axons in nerve 1, no central branching seen
- resting potential -50mV
- spike amplitude 55-80 mV
- basal firing rate= 0.8Hz
- Responded to light with increased firing
- baseline and light-induced firing rates are greater for LP3 than for RP3
