Using the whole-cell recording technique, we have examined the slow Ca2+-activated afterhyperpolarization (AHP) and its underlying current (IAHP) in hippocampal CA1 neurones of brain slices obtained from mature rats. Specifically we have studied the effects of the anion component of various K+ salts commonly used to make the pipette filling solution that dialyses neurones during whole-cell recordings. Among the K+ salts examined which included potassium methylsulfate, potassium methanesulfonate… Expand
Sodium-activated potassium conductance participates in the depolarizing afterpotential following a single action potential in rat hippocampal CA1 pyramidal cells
TLDR
Mechanisms related to the DAP following an antidromic or current-induced spike were studied in CA1 pyramidal cells by whole-cell recordings in hippocampal slices in vitro and it was suggested that Li(+) increased DAP by blocking an Na(+)-activated K(+) current. Expand

TLDR
4‐AP appears to block the slow Ca2+‐activated K+ current underlying the sAHP in a complex manner which is sensitive to certain types of anions. Expand
A Sodium-Pump-Mediated Afterhyperpolarization in Pyramidal Neurons
TLDR
A previously unappreciated role for the sodium-potassium ATPase in regulating the excitability of neocortical and hippocampal pyramidal neurons is described and calcium contributions to the AHP are found to be temperature dependent: prominent at room temperature, but largely absent at 35°C. Expand
Stability and plasticity of intrinsic membrane properties in hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons: effects of internal anions
TLDR
Data show that KMeth produces time‐dependent changes in basic membrane properties and prevents or obscures activity‐dependent reduction of the AHP, and in whole‐cell recordings using KGluc, repetitive theta‐burst firing induced AHP plasticity that mimics learning‐related reduction in the A HP. Expand
Apamin-Sensitive Small Conductance Calcium-Activated Potassium Channels, through their Selective Coupling to Voltage-Gated Calcium Channels, Are Critical Determinants of the Precision, Pace, and Pattern of Action Potential Generation in Rat Subthalamic Nucleus Neurons In Vitro
TLDR
It is shown that small conductance KCa channels play a fundamental role in autonomous, driven, and rebound activity and oppose the transition from autonomous, rhythmic, single-spike activity to burst firing in STN neurons. Expand
Relationships between intracellular calcium and afterhyperpolarizations in neocortical pyramidal neurons.
TLDR
The data suggest that sAHP channels require an elevation of [Ca2+]i in the cy toplasm, rather than at the membrane, consistent with a role for a cytoplasmic intermediate between Ca2+ and the K+ channels. Expand
SK (KCa2) channels do not control somatic excitability in CA1 pyramidal neurons but can be activated by dendritic excitatory synapses and regulate their impact.
TLDR
It is concluded that SK channels in rat CA1 pyramidal cells can be activated by NMDAR-mediated synaptic input and cause feedback regulation of synaptic efficacy but are normally not appreciably activated by somatic Na(+) spikes in this cell type. Expand
Control of IsAHP in mouse hippocampus CA1 pyramidal neurons by RyR3-mediated calcium-induced calcium release
TLDR
It is shown that calcium release from the ryanodine-sensitive calcium store is a major determinant of the triggering of IsAHP in mouse CA1 pyramidal neurons and Immunohistology, using an anti-RyR3 specific antibody, indicates that RyR3 expression is particularly enriched in the CA1 apical dendrites. Expand
Calcium-activated afterhyperpolarizations regulate synchronization and timing of epileptiform bursts in hippocampal CA3 pyramidal neurons.
TLDR
Novel cellular mechanisms are described where the inhibition of the mAHP plays an essential role in the genesis and regulation of the bursting activity by reducing negative feedback, the sAHP sets the interburst interval by decreasing excitability, and bursting was synchronized by excitatory synaptic interactions that increased in advance and during bursts and decreased throughout the subsequent sA HP. Expand
The firing patterns of spinal neurons: in situ patch‐clamp recordings reveal a key role for potassium currents
TLDR
How this ensemble of currents and firing patterns underpins the operation of the Xenopus locomotor network is discussed, and how simple mechanisms might underlie the similar firing patterns seen in the neurons of diverse species are suggested. Expand

Calcium activates two types of potassium channels in rat hippocampal neurons in culture
TLDR
To investigate the single Ca2(+)- dependent channels that might underlie the afterhyperpolarizations in hippocampal pyramidal cells, patch-clamp experiments on hippocampal neurons in primary culture observed 2 types of channel activity: large- and small-conductance channels, in accord with those of the fast and slow AHP, respectively.

TLDR
A simple diffusion-based model that incorporates two intrinsic calcium buffers is developed that accounts for many of the properties of GkCa,1 and reflects the time course of removal of calcium that has entered the cell during the action potential. Expand
Effects of intracellular calcium chelation on voltage-dependent and calcium-dependent currents in cat neocortical neurons
TLDR
Large neurons from layer V in a slice preparation of cat sensorimotor cortex were impaled with microelectrodes containing KCl plus different concentrations of the Ca2+ chelator 1,2-bis(o-aminophenoxy)ethane-N, N,N,N',N'-tetra-acetic acid (BAPTA) or two of its derivatives, and the transformed firing properties resemble those of hippocampal pyramidal neurons.

Endogenous intracellular calcium buffering and the activation/inactivation of HVA calcium currents in rat dentate gyrus granule cells
TLDR
The results are consistent with the hypothesis that endogenous intraneuronal CaBP contributes significantly to submembrane Ca2+ sequestration at a concentration range and time domain that regulate Ca 2+ channel inactivation. Expand
Muscarinic and beta-adrenergic depression of the slow Ca2(+)-activated potassium conductance in hippocampal CA3 pyramidal cells is not mediated by a reduction of depolarization-induced cytosolic Ca2+ transients.
TLDR
Observations provide direct evidence that the inhibition of IAHP by isoproterenol and muscarine are not mediated by an alteration of Ca2+ dynamics. Expand

TLDR
The hippocampal pyramidal cells provide an example of how multiple potassium (K) currents co-exist and function in central mammalian neurones and a transient Ca-dependent K current has been described in certain preparations, but it is not yet clear whether it is distinct from IC and IA. Expand
Oscillation of [Ca2+]i-linked K+ conductance in bullfrog sympathetic ganglion cell is sensitive to intracellular anions
TLDR
It is found that the slow oscillatory hyperpolarisations recorded from the bullfrog sympathetic ganglion cell in Ringer solution are generated by a [Ca2+]i-linked GK system and are highly sensitive to anions in an intracellular recording electrode, probably to intrACEllular anions. Expand
Whole-cell recording of anoxic effects on hippocampal neurons in slices.
TLDR
It appears that the much greater anoxic changes in Vm and RN recorded with intracellular electrodes are probably mediated by a diffusible cytosolic agent and during whole-cell recording, both resting RN and the anoxic fall in RN are more strongly determined by cytOSolic [ATP] than [Ca]. Expand
Intracellular Mg2+ inhibits the IP3-activated IK(Ca) in NG108-15 cells. [Why intracellular citrate can be useful for recording IK(Ca)]
TLDR
It is concluded that IP3-induced IK(Ca), activated by intracellular injections of IP3 in whole-cell patch-clamped neuroblastoma×glioma hybrid cells, is expressed under normal conditions, but may be subject to regulation by intrACEllular Mg2+. Expand
Specific involvement of Ca(2+)-calmodulin kinase II in cholinergic modulation of neuronal responsiveness.
TLDR
By increasing Ca2+ accumulation during electrical activity and promoting CaMKII activity, muscarinic input provides parallel reinforcing pathways for the induction of long-term potentiation, an important cellular memory mechanism, which suggests a possible link between behavioral and cellular approaches to the analysis of learning and memory.
