Neuronal Currents
  • Using a whole chick (Gallus domesticus) basilar papilla preparation, a map of changes in potassium currents of tall hair cells was produced. All cells recorded from expressed IKCa and IK. The amplitude of total outward current increased in a gradient along the tonotopic axis Show Other
  • Whole-cell patch-clamp recordings were used to identify and characterize ionic currents in isolated cells. Most cells possessed a slowly activating IK, which is approximately 80% inactive at rest. In a small subset of cells, IK was replaced by an IA. It is suggested that the kinetic properties of the ionic currents argue against electrical tuning Show Other
