Spinal cord lumbar motor neuron alpha ACh cellAxon hillockI Na,t.This channel is present in high density in all species. Original intracellular recordings suggesting site of impulse initiation is the axon hillock with backspread into the soma dendrites (FUORTES MG et al, 19572 ). see also (Eccles JC, 19571 ). reviewed in Shepherd 1998). Variable densities of active channels support variable extents of backpropagating impulse in the dendrites (Larkum ME et al, 1996 [rat]3 ). SOBiv p96).
