Cav1.3 channels in motoneuron dendrites are actively involved during normal motor activities. To investigate the effects of the activation of motoneuron Cav1.3 channels on force production, a model motor unit was built based on best-available data. The simulation results suggest that force potentiation induced by Cav1.3 channel activation is strongly modulated not only by firing history of the motoneuron but also by length variation of the muscle as well as neuromodulation inputs from the brainstem.
