Low-voltage-activated Ca(2+) currents (LVA-I(Ca)) are believed to perform several roles in neurons such as lowering the threshold for action potentials, promoting burst firing and oscillatory behavior, and enhancing synaptic excitation. They also may allow rapid increases in intracellular Ca(2+) concentration. We discovered LVA-I(Ca) in both members of paired mechanoreceptor neurons in a spider, where one neuron adapts rapidly (Type A) and the other slowly (Type B) in response to a step… CONTINUE READING
