Spontaneous activity of neuronal membrane
Languages of publication
Many neurons of the vertebrate and invertebrate central nervous system (CNS) exhibit rhythmic oscillations of membrane potentials in absence of external stimuli. Spontaneous firing of these cells generates the activity in various areas of CNS. Firing patterns produced by autoactive neurons and role of several ionic conductances in driving membrane potential to the threshold of action potential generation is described.
