The complexity of behavior of single neurons derives from a number a factors: they have complicated shapes; voltage-dependent conductances have intricate properties, and the conductances are distributed across the membrane with non-uniform densities; and synaptic conductances operate on many different time scales. Furthermore, each type of neuron has its own repertoire of shape, channel distribution, synaptic receptors, and firing properties.

Keywords:   intrinsic properties, neuronal morphology, membrane conductance, synaptic receptors
