Most of our knowledge about insect calcium currents is derived from studies on cultured or dissociated somata. So far, only little data on calcium currents are available for neurons including their dendritic and presynaptic structures. Here we combined the switched-electrode voltage-clamp technique with optical recording using calcium-sensitive dyes in identified fly visual interneurons in vivo to characterize the voltage dependence and dynamics of calcium currents quantitatively and in a… CONTINUE READING
