Erisir, A., D. Lau, B. Rudy, and C. S. Leonard. Function of specific K channels in sustained high-frequency firing of fast-spiking neocortical interneurons. J. Neurophysiol. 82: 2476–2489, 1999. Fastspiking GABAergic interneurons of the neocortex and hippocampus fire high-frequency trains of brief action potentials with little spikefrequency adaptation. How these striking properties arise is unclear, although recent evidence suggests K channels containing Kv3.1Kv3.2 proteins play an important… CONTINUE READING
