Specific patterns of neural impulses regulate genes controlling nervous system development and plasticity, but it is not known how intracellular signaling cascades and transcriptional activation mechanisms can regulate specific genes in response to specific patterns of action potentials. Studies using electrical stimulation of mouse dorsal root ganglion(More)
Autonomous activation of calcium-calmodulin kinase (CaMKII) has been proposed as a molecular mechanism for decoding Ca(2+) spike frequencies resulting from action potential firing, but this has not been investigated in intact neurons. This was studied in mouse DRG neurons in culture using confocal measurements of [Ca(2+)](i) and biochemical measurements of(More)

Nervous system development and plasticity are regulated by neural impulse activity, but it is not well understood how the pattern of action potential firing could regulate the expression of genes responsible for long-term adaptive responses in the nervous system. Studies on mouse sensory neurons in cell cultures equipped with stimulating electrodes show(More)
