Activity of neurons embedded in networks is an inseparable composition of intrinsic and evoked processes. Prevalence of either component depends on the neuron’s function (e.g., signal pacemaker vs. transmitter) and state (e.g., low vs. high depolarization states). Complex firing patterns of a neuron are conventionally attributed to complex spatial-temporal organization of inputs received from the network-mates via synapses, in vast majority dendritic. However, these views require revisiting…
