This mini-review highlights electrophysiological studies of neurons in the area postrema, including studies using anesthetized animals, neurons in the brain slices, and cultured cells. Electrophysiological studies have demonstrated chemosensitivities, intrinsic membrane properties, synaptic responses and the receptive mechanism of several peptides. For seven decades, electrophysiological research has produced much of what we know about the behavior of postrema neurons. This and other issues are presented and discussed in this paper.
