Subthalamic nucleus principal GABA cellSomaI Na,p.A persistent sodium current was the source of current during the depolarizing phase of the oscillation.” (Bevan MD and Wilson CJ, 19991 ).
Subthalamic nucleus principal GABA cellSomaI K,Ca.A long duration component of the spike afterhyperpolarization determined the period of the oscillation and was generated by an apamin-sensitive calcium-activated potassium current..” (Bevan MD and Wilson CJ, 19991 ).
Subthalamic nucleus principal GABA cellSomaI Calcium.Thus there is a steady-state calcium current contributing to the depolarization phase of the oscillation but small in comparison with the sodium current." (Bevan MD and Wilson CJ, 19991 ).
