Thalamus geniculate nucleus (lateral) principal neuronSomaI L high threshold.Using electrophysiological recordings and imaging, the density of these channels was found to rapidly decrease with distance from soma and clustered in high density around the base of dendrites (Budde T et al, 1998404 ).
Thalamus geniculate nucleus (lateral) principal neuronProximal equivalent dendriteI L high threshold.This conductance triggers impulses in dendrites and soma, leading to Ca-dependant K conductances (Steriade M and Llinas RR, 1988 [mammal ]38 ; Sherman and Koch, 1990). Using electrophysiological recordings and imaging, the density of these channels was found to rapidly decrease with distance from soma and clustered in high density around the base of dendrites (Budde T et al, 1998404 ).
