The abstract from the paper:
Of the factors that characterize the properties and functions of
neurons, dendritic geometry is one of the most critical. We used
simulations employing the multi-compartment model to study the
effects of dendritic tip geometry on the electrical properties of
the "large cell" in a teleost thalamic nucleus from the corpus
glomerulosum. We demonstrated a dramatic geometrical "boosting"
effect; passive propagation of the synaptic inputs from the
dendritic tip to the soma through the dendritic stalk is less
attenuated in cells with larger tips.
