Electrophysiological properties of in vitro Purkinje cell dendrites in mammalian cerebellar slices.
1. Intradendritic recordings from Purkinje cells in vitro indicate that white matter stimulation produces large synaptic responses by the activation of the climbing fibre afferent, but antidromicExpand

Electrophysiological properties of guinea‐pig thalamic neurones: an in vitro study.
The electroresponsive properties of guinea‐pig thalamic neurones were studied using an in vitro slice preparation. A total of 650 cells were recorded intracellularly comprising all regions of theExpand

Bursting of thalamic neurons and states of vigilance.
This article addresses the functional significance of the electrophysiological properties of thalamic neurons. We propose that thalamocortical activity, is the product of the intrinsic electricalExpand

Rhythmic and dysrhythmic thalamocortical dynamics: GABA systems and the edge effect
Brain function is fundamentally related in the most general sense to the richness of thalamocortical interconnectivity, and in particular to the rhythmic oscillatory properties of thalamocorticalExpand

Ionic basis for the electro‐responsiveness and oscillatory properties of guinea‐pig thalamic neurones in vitro.
The ionic requirements for electro‐responsiveness in thalamic neurones were studied using in vitro slice preparations of the guinea‐pig diencephalon. Analysis of the current‐voltage relationship inExpand

Oscillatory properties of guinea‐pig inferior olivary neurones and their pharmacological modulation: an in vitro study.
The oscillatory properties of the membrane potential in inferior olivary neurones were studied in guinea‐pig brain‐stem slices maintained in vitro. Intracellular double‐ramp current injection atExpand
