Publication facts (s) having Atherton JF, Bevan MD (2005) as Paper having this fact

1 CaV channels are among the intrinsic membrane channels influencing the excitability of the SNr neuronal membrane. CaV channels have been shown to influence spontaneous activity in these neurons, as well as more complex behaviors such as plateau potential generation burst firing.”
2 Depolarizes SNr principle cells. Generated by subset of voltage-gated sodium channels that remain open for extended periods of time. Can contribute to neuronal excitability and pacemaking activities.
