1. We have developed a 16-compartment model that reproduces most of the features of the CA1 pyramidal cell electrophysiology observed experimentally. The model was constructed using seven active ionic conductances: gNa, gCa, gDR, gCT, gA, gM, and gAHP whose kinetics have been, inferred, in most cases, from the available voltage-clamp data obtained from(More)
A model of the hippocampal granule cells was created that closely approximated most of the measured intracellular responses from a neuron under a variety of stimulus conditions. This model suggests that: (1) A simple, four-conductance model can account for most of the intracellular behavior of these neurons. (2) The repolarization mechanism in granule cells(More)
Phase-plane analysis of the ionic currents underlying dendritic plateau potentials was carried out to study the nonlinear dynamics and steady-state transfer properties of the dendritic tree in cerebellar Purkinje cells. The results of an analysis of the P-type calcium and delayed rectifier potassium channel system are presented in this study. These channels(More)
The effects of low dose ethanol treatment on neuronal firing threshold were studied in dentate granule neurons using intracellular recording. A higher threshold for orthodromic activation and lower threshold for somatic activation were observed in 50 mM of ethanol, based on an examination of the excitatory postsynaptic potentials, strength duration and(More)
Using the indirect antibody peroxidase-antiperoxidase method of Sternberger, we localized substance P (SP), somatostatin (SOM), enkephalin (ENK), and serotonin (5HT, 5-hydroxytryptamine) in the spinal cord of Rana pipiens. This is the first study to demonstrate all four substances in adjacent sections of frog spinal cord. The distribution patterns of ENK,(More)
ing myocyte acts as an internal load, resisting shortening and incurring metabolic costs formerly attributed solely to extracellular load. Transmural pressure developed during shortening is held responsible for cell relengthening during relaxation. Intramyocardial fluid pressure is concluded to be generated by shortening of primarily fluid filled fibers.(More)
