Possible mechanisms underlying bursting pacemaker discharges in invertebrate neurons.

Abstract

Certain invertebrate neurons generate endogenous bursts of action potentials due to an underlying slow membrane potential oscillation. An early hypothesis for the oscillations proposed a high resting sodium conductance that led to the depolarizing phase, followed by activation of an electrogenic sodium pump coupled to chloride ions, leading to the… (More)
