Using patch clamp and modeling, we illustrate that spike latency characteristics are the product of an interplay between I(A) and low-threshold calcium current (I(T)) that requires a steady-state difference in the inactivation parameters of the currents. Furthermore, we show that the unique first-spike latency characteristics of stellate cells have important implications for the integration of coincident IPSPs and EPSPs, such that inhibition can shift first-spike latency to differentially modulate the probability of firing.
