Long time series of responses from single neurons
Data from a research published by Gal, et al. (see file 2010a-JNeurosci.pdf). Background: Although neuronal excitability is well understood and accurately modeled over timescales of up to hundreds of milliseconds, it is unclear whether extrapolating from this limited duration to longer behaviorally relevant timescales is appropriate. In this study we used an extracellular recording and stimulation paradigm that extends the duration of single-neuron electrophysiological experiments, exposing the dynamics of excitability in individual cortical neurons over timescales hitherto inaccessible. The neurons are decoupled from their networks by means of pharmacology that blocks synaptic transmission.
