Previous current-clamp studies in rat hippocampal slice CA1 neurons have found aging-related increases in long-lasting calcium (Ca)-dependent and Ca-mediated potentials. These changes could reflect an increase in Ca influx through voltage-gated Ca channels but also could reflect a change in potassium currents. Moreover, if altered Ca influx is involved, it is nuclear whether it arises from generally increased Ca channel activity, lower threshold, or reduced inactivation. To analyze the basis… CONTINUE READING
