Publication facts (s) having Hoffman DA, Magee JC, Colbert CM, Johnston D (1997) as Paper having this fact

1 A shift toward more depolarized potentials of the activation curve has also been observed in mid and distal dendrites (more than 100um)
2 Patch-clamp recordings reveal a high density of A-type K channels in the dendritic tree, which increases with distance from the soma
3 Patch-clamp recordings reveal A-type K channels in the soma
4 These channels "prevent initiation of an action potential in the dendrites, limit the backpropagation of action potentials into the dendrites, and reduce excitatory synaptic events"
