1. The role of calcium conductances in action potential generation and repetitive firing behavior of hypoglossal motoneurons (HMs) was investigated using intracellular recording and patch-clamp techniques in a brain stem slice preparation of neonatal rats (0-15 days old). 2. The action potential was followed by an afterdepolarization (ADP). The ADP was voltage dependent, increasing with membrane hyperpolarization. Raising the extracellular Ca2+ concentration or replacing Ca2+ with Ba2… CONTINUE READING
