Physiological Role of Calcium-Activated Potassium Currents in the Rat Lateral Amygdala

Faber, Elizabeth (Louise); Sah, Pankaj


Principal neurons in the lateral nucleus of the amygdala (LA) exhibit a continuum of firing properties in response to prolonged current injections ranging from those that accommodate fully to those that fire repetitively. In most cells, trains of action potentials are followed by a slow afterhyperpolarization (AHP) lasting several seconds. Reducing calcium influx either by lowering concentrations of extracellular calcium or by applying nickel abolished the AHP, confirming it is mediated by...[Show more]
