Recovery of neuronal channel densities from calcium fluorescence
Neurons have the ability to dynamically adjust their own membrane channel densities to modulate the strength of communication with other neurons. This process is integral to such neuronal functions as spatial recognition ...
A quantitative study of neuronal calcium signaling
Neurons have both a fast and slow mode of signaling. Fast signals are communicated by transmembrane voltage changes, while calcium levels within the cell communicate information on a much slower time scale. Calcium acts ...
Recovery of synaptic conductance and location using distal voltage measurements
This study introduces a new mathematical approach for determining synaptic location and synaptic conductance from distal voltage recordings. The ability to comprehend how synapses transmit information provides a better ...
The effect of synaptic plasticity on spatial representation and navigation
Synaptic plasticity, or the change in weight of the connections between cells, is a key mechanism underlying the brain's spatial representation and navigation functions. Experimentalists have shown that grid cells in the ...
