Neostriatum spiny direct pathway neuronSomaI T low threshold.Whole-cell voltage-clamp recordings showed that a low-threshold transient (T-type) Ca2+ current was observed in 40% of neurons (Hoehn K et al, 1993 [rat ]236 ). Another study suggested that adult neostriatal projection neurons do not express significant levels of LVA Ca2+ current (Bargas J et al, 1994 [rat ]248 )
