1. The ability of dendrites in turtle motoneurones to support calcium spikes and calcium plateaux was investigated using differential polarization by applied electric fields. 2. Electric fields were generated by passing current through transverse slices of the turtle spinal cord between two plate electrodes. The linear extracellular voltage gradient generated by the field implied that the tissue was ohmic and homogeneous. 3. The transmembrane potential at the cell body of motoneurones was… CONTINUE READING
