Homeostatic effects of the autoreceptors. Panel A shows that the presence of autoreceptors stabilize the velocity of the TH reaction against changes in TH expression level. Panel B shows that the autoreceptors stabilize eda against changes in firing rate. eda level is shown as a function of firing rate (% percent normal) without autoreceptors present (blue curve) and with autoreceptors (red curve).
