VOLTAGE-DEPENDENT membrane calcium currents, ICa, occur in muscle1,2, axons3,4 and nerve cell bodies5–9 but are not well characterised because of difficulties in separating them from other ionic currents, and inadequate spatial and temporal control of the clamp voltages used to examine them. As a result, information on the conduction process underlying ICa is limited. Recently two new techniques have been reported6,9,10 which overcome most of the problems associated with experimental… CONTINUE READING
