Calcium currents in dissociated cochlear neurons from the chick embryo and their modification by neurotrophin-3.


Calcium entry through voltage-dependent channels play a critical role in neuronal development. Using patch-clamp techniques we have identified the components of the macroscopic Ca2+ current in acutely-isolated chick cochlear ganglion neurons and analysed their functional expression throughout embryonic development. With Ba2+ as a charge carrier, the… (More)
