Resonance of the membrane potential in response to a perturbing current has been demonstrated in sensory hair cells of many acoustico-lateralis systems and modelled as the result of the interaction of passive membrane properties and the magnitude and kinetics of activation and deactivation of an outward calcium-activated potassium current (IKCa) and an inward calcium current (ICa). However, the majority of the hair cells of the toadfish saccule have, in addition to IKCa, a voltage-gated… CONTINUE READING
