Turtle Flexion Reflex Motor Patterns Show Windup, Mediated Partly by L-type Calcium Channels

Windup is a form of multisecond temporal summation in which identical stimuli, delivered seconds apart, trigger increasingly strong neuronal responses. L-type Ca2+ channels have been shown to play an important role in the production of windup of spinal cord neuronal responses, initially in studies of turtle spinal cord and later in studies of mammalian… CONTINUE READING
