A Ca2+-activated K+ current was identified in neurons from the rat medial preoptic nucleus. Its functional role for the resting potential and for impulse generation was characterised by using the reversible blocking agent bicuculline methiodide. Acutely dissociated neurons were studied by perforated-patch recordings. The effect of bicuculline methiodide was… CONTINUE READING
