NeuronCompartmentPropertyConnectivityNotes
Hippocampus CA1 pyramidal GLU cellDistal oblique dendriteI A.The A current increases with distance from the soma normalizes Ca+ signals during AP propagation (Frick A et al, 2003 [rat]2 ). (Gasparini S et al, 2007 [rat]3 ). and (Migliore M et al, 20051 ). Individual branches can function as single integrative compartments where the fast oblique spike contains contributions from NMDA, VGCCs, and the A current (Losonczy A and Magee JC, 2006 [rat]4 ).
