Previously we reported that cultured rat GABAergic amacrine cells can evoke subthreshold graded depolarization and action potentials. Both types of electrical signals are thought to contribute to neurotransmitter release from their dendrites, because Ca(2+) channels in amacrine cells can be activated at a subthreshold level (around -50 mV). The aim of the… CONTINUE READING
