The essence of neuronal function is to generate outputs, usually in the form of action potentials, in response to inputs, in the form of synaptic potentials. The morphology and membrane properties of dendrites are extremely important determinants of this input-output transformation. This chapter discusses the many factors affecting the dendritic integration of synaptic potentials, including the site of action potential initiation and dendritic excitability.

Keywords:   neuronal function, synaptic potentials, dendrites, input-output transformation, dendritic integration, dendritic excitability
