Brager Lab publishes in Journal of Neurophysiology

Greg Ordemann, a graduate student in the Brager Lab, recently published a paper in the Journal of Neurophysiology entitled “D-type potassium channels normalize action potential firing between dorsal and ventral CA1 neurons of the mouse hippocampus.”  This research reveals that action potential threshold in ventral neurons is influenced by a greater functional expression of D-type potassium channels resulting in a depolarized action potential threshold compared with dorsal hippocampus.  These results identify a mechanism underlying the more depolarized action potential threshold in ventral as compared to dorsal neurons and the resulting normalization of action potential firing between dorsal and ventral CA1 hippocampal neurons.
