Brager Lab publishes in Journal of Neurophysiology

Posted on:

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 […]
