Dendritic voltage-gated ion channels

Dendritic voltage-gated ion channels

(p.225) Chapter 9 Dendritic voltage-gated ion channels

Jeffrey C. Magee

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the types and distributions of the main voltage-gated ion channels presently known to exist within the dendrites of CA1 pyramidal neurons, neocortical layer Vm pyramidal neurons, cerebellar Purkinje cells, and olfactory bulb mitral cells. This is a rapidly expanding field, and the focus of this chapter is intentionally limited to these four distinctly different types of central neurons because a substantial amount of high-quality information is available concerning their dendritic voltage-gated channels, and because they express a wide range of different types of dendritic electrogenesis. The chapter begins with a short survey of the known dendritic voltage-gated ion channel types and their modulation. A table comparing the physiologically relevant biophysical properties and some pharmacology of these ion channels is also included.

Keywords:   voltage-gated ion channels, CA1 pyramidal neurons, Purkinje cells, olfactory bulb mitral cells, dendritic electrogenesis, central neurons
