The experimentally observed behavior of the electron density and plasma conductivity in the near afterglow is analyzed. It is shown that the observed increase of the electron concentration in the near afterglow as determined from the Stark broadening of the Hb hydrogen line reflects, in fact, the variation of the active medium temperature; and the increase of the plasma conductivity reflects the ~ 0.1 eV increase of the electron temperature due to additional energy deposition into the active medium after an excitation pulse.
