The electrical activity pattern of endocrine pituitary cells regulates their basal secretion level. Rat somatotrophs and lactotrophs exhibit spontaneous bursting and have high basal levels of hormone(More)
Anterior pituitary corticotroph cells are a central component of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis essential for the neuroendocrine response to stress. Corticotrophs are excitable cells(More)
When stimulated with a constant stimulus, many neurons initially respond with a high spike frequency that then decays down to a lower steady-state frequency (Fig. 1 A). This dynamics of the spike(More)
