Olfactory bulb main interneuron periglomerular GABA cellSomaI Calcium.Electrophysiological classification of juxtaglomerular neurons: bursting and standard firing. In contrast to the standard firing neurons, bursting neurons produced a calcium-channel-dependent low-threshold spike (LTS) when depolarized either by current injection or by spontaneous or evoked postsynaptic potentials. Bursting neurons also could oscillate spontaneously. Most bursting cells were either periglomerular cells or external tufted cells. Based on their mode of firing and placement in the bulb circuit, these bursting cells are well situated to drive synchronous oscillations in the olfactory bulb. LVA (low voltage-activated) Ca++ channel may be involved in LTS. (McQuiston AR and Katz LC, 20011 ).
