The authors speculate that these effects may indicate a biphasic response to PBDE-99, and suggest that the phenomenon should be studied further in future research.
In one preparation, stimulation at point A produced a biphasic response in the muscle fibers of the ipsilateral valve [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 4C OMITTED]; in five others, stimulation at point B produced biphasic responses.
