Different analytical expressions for the membrane potential distribution of membranes subject to synaptic noise have been proposed and can be very helpful in analyzing experimental data. However, all of these expressions are either approximations or limit cases, and it is not clear how they compare and which expression should be used in a given situation. In this note, we provide a comparison of the different approximations available, with an aim of delineating which expression is most suitable… CONTINUE READING
