Olfactory bulb main mitral GLU cellDistal apical dendriteI Na,t.Implied by recording of fast prepotential. Dual patch recordings provide evidence for both backpropagating and forward-propagating impulses in the primary dendrite (Mori K et al, 1982 [turtle]1 ). Chen et al 1997).Dendritic patch recordings showed an even density of Na channels (120pSum-2) up to 350 um from the soma along the primary dendrite to theorigin of the glomerular tuft (Bischofberger J and Jonas P, 19972 ). By combining intracellular recordings and two-photon microscopy imaging of [Ca]i in rat it was shown that APs backpropagate at full amplitude up to the tuft (Debarbieux F et al, 20033 ).
