Hippocampus CA1 pyramidal GLU cellProximal apical dendriteI N.Ca fluorescence imaging shows that application of N-channel antagonists slightly reduces the Ca influx associated with backpropagating action potentials (Christie BR et al, 19953 ). Using confocal microscopy, these channels were found to be localized on the soma, dendrites, and a subpopulation of dendritic spines (Mills LR et al, 19941 ).
