By normalising drug effects to the a-wave it is evident that with IM injection of isoguvacine in anaesthetized rats, the reduction in a-wave output can account for the subsequent b-wave attenuation. However, decreased a-wave output does not account for the paradoxical increase in rod b-wave amplitude seen following IV injection of isoguvacine.
