Mitral cell dendrites do more than passively integrate and convey synaptic potentials to the soma, they release transmitter onto local interneurones to mediate recurrent and lateral inhibition. Several mechanisms may control the level of dendritic intracellular calcium ([Ca(2+)]) and define timing for dendritic release. Here we investigated in vivo, how odor controls calcium dynamics in mitral cell dendrites by combining intracellular recording and two-photon microscopy imaging of [Ca(2… CONTINUE READING
