KEY POINTS In neurons, the Ca(2+) signal associated with the dendritic back-propagating action potential codes a chemical message to the different dendritic sites, playing a crucial role in electrical signalling, synaptic transmission and synaptic plasticity. The study of the underlying Ca(2+) current, mediated by different types of voltage-gated Ca(2+) channels, cannot be achieved by using the patch clamp technique. In this article, we used a recently developed cutting-edge optical technique… CONTINUE READING
