Indeed, up to two additional action potentials were observed in the gastrocnemius, an observation rationalized by the authors as the result of the prolongation of the endplate potential beyond the muscle fiber refractory period.

In addition, intracellular recordings as those required to probe miniature endplate potentials (MEPP), miniature endplate currents (MEPC), endplate potentials (EPP) and endplate currents (EPC) are performed directly on patient muscle biopsies.
5) Amplitude of miniature endplate currents or miniature endplate potentials.
Dissociated electrocytes produced endplate potentials of 50100 mV when stimulated repetitively at 2 to 10 Hz with suction electrodes applied to innervating nerves (up to 4 days) or the innervated external surface of electrocytes (4-7 days).
