Calcium waves in gray matter are due to voltage-sensitive glial membrane channels.

Abstract

The retina is the most accessible piece of central gray matter in the vertebrate brain. Its wide dynamic operational range makes it the ideal neuronal network to study its excitability. Spreading depression waves in the retina are accompanied by strong intrinsic optical signals (IOS) and thus can be measured non-invasively with optical methods. Additionally… (More)
