From reference below and Corrigendum: J Neurophysiol 87:1a, 2002 (better versions of figures 2, 3, 5 and 7 because of poor print quality in the original article; as of 2/2006, these figures are perfectly fine in the PDF of the original article that is currently available from the publisher's WWW site). Examines the anatomical and biophysical factors that account for the fact that retrograde invasion of spikes into the apical dendritic tree past 300 um succeeds in some CA1 pyramidal neurons but fails in others.
