Olfactory bulb main interneuron granule MC GABA cellMiddle equivalent dendriteI T low threshold.A study in rat using two-photon microscopy to image calcium transients revealed these channels and suggested a novel mechanism for regulation of lateral inhibition (Egger V et al, 20031 ). Low threshold calcium spikes were antagonized by T-channel blockers in rat (Pinato G and Midtgaard J, 20032 ).
