    Maturation and differentiation of electrical properties of neurons and synaptic transmission are modulated by neuronal interaction. In vitro experiments have shown that these processes also seem to be regulated by signals from non-neuronal elements such as glial cells. It is not known, however,...

    High impulse rate in afferent nerves is a common feature in many sensory systems that serve to accommodate a wide dynamic range. However, the first stage of integration should be endowed with specific properties that enable efficient handling of the incoming information. In elasmobranches, the...

    It was recently discovered that two different types of voltage-insensitive K+ channels, G protein-coupled inwardly rectifying K+ (GIRK) and small-conductance Ca2+-activated K+ (SK) channels, are located on dendritic branches, spines and shafts in the postsynaptic densities of excitatory synapses...

    Modulation of the properties of AMPA receptors at the post-synaptic membrane is one of the main suggested mechanisms underlying fast synaptic transmission in the central nervous system of vertebrates. Electrophysiological recordings of single channels stimulated with agonists showed that both...

    It is known that cell density influences the maturation process of in vitro neuronal networks. Neuronal cultures plated with different cell densities differ in number of synapses per neuron and thus in single neuron synaptic transmission, which results in a density-dependent neuronal network...

    There have been extensive efforts to characterize the mechanism of action of volatile anesthetics, but their molecular and cellular actions are still a matter of debate. Volatile anesthetics act primarily on synaptic transmission in the central nervous system but proof of this as the predominant...
