Electrophysiological, Optical, and Computational Studies of Dendritic Excitability

Wednesday 20th of February 2008 at 12:00pm
508-20 Evans Hall

Spike-timing dependent plasticity has gained much recent attention as a basis for encoding information at synapses. I will present a number of features of back-propagating dendritic spikes in pyramidal neurons that increase the complexity of dendritic information storage. Both electrophysiological recordings of dendritic ion channels and multi-site multi-photon imaging of dendrites will be discussed in relation to a model of compartmentalization of the dendritic arbor.
