Initiation of simple and complex spikes in cerebellar Purkinje cells

Palmer, Lucy; Clark, Beverley A; Grundemann, Jan; Roth, Arnd; Stuart, Gregory J; Hausser, Michael


Cerebellar Purkinje cells produce two distinct forms of action potential output: simple and complex spikes. Simple spikes occur spontaneously or are driven by parallel fibre input, while complex spikes are activated by climbing fibre input. Previous studies indicate that both simple and complex spikes originate in the axon of Purkinje cells, but the precise location where they are initiated is unclear. Here we address where in the axon of cerebellar Purkinje cells simple and complex spikes are...[Show more]
