Membrane potential changes in dendritic spines during APs and synaptic input (Palmer & Stuart 2009)
" ... Finally, we used simulations of our experimental observations in morphologically realistic models to estimate spine neck resistance. These simulations indicated that spine neck resistance ranges up to ~500 M Ohm. Spine neck resistances of this magnitude reduce somatic EPSPs by ~15%, indicating that the spine neck is unlikely to act as a physical device to significantly modify synaptic strength."
