We characterized the electrophysiological properties of vibrissa motoneurones (vMNs) in rat. Intracellular recordings of vMNs in brainstem slices from animals aged P4 to P5 and P9 to P11, i.e. newborn animals, showed that the subthreshold membrane impedance has the form of passive decay. In particular, the impedance follows the 1/ radical f signature for long dendrites beyond a cut-off frequency of f(c)= 8 Hz. In contrast, the impedance has the form of a resonant filter in vMNs from slices… CONTINUE READING
