Thus, the contribution to the action potential repolarization phase will be more limited.
(50),(51) This local NMDA-R-dependent potential, a highly supralinear summation of multiple inputs, has a much more significant impact on the generation of an action potential than the summation of the separate effects, and enhances the generation of action potentials at the soma.
Part of the fitting procedure involves objective measures, such as electrically evoked compound action potentials (eCAP) or evoked auditory brainstem responses (eABR).
Despite the apparent importance of action potentials, for years researchers believed that C.
It is known, for example, that the ion channels may be voltage-gated and also mechanically sensitive [48] and that an action potential generates an axoplasmic pressure wave in the intersticial fluid [43,44].
The cardiac ultrarapid outward ([I.sub.Kur]) current, which is encoded by Kcna5, controls action potential duration and in particular repolarizing current [68-70].
Bean, "Roles of tetrodotoxin (TTX)-sensitive Na+ current, TTX-resistant [Na.sup.+] current, and [Ca.sup.2+] current in the action potentials of nociceptive sensory neurons," The Journal of Neuroscience, vol.
Compound action potential (CAP) inhibition of rat sciatic nerve promoted by essential oil of L.
The electrocardiogram (ECG) is a dynamic potential difference of myocardial membrane action potential between two points of body surface, and it can objectively reflect the physiological status of the heart [15].
Some interesting discoveries have been found during the study of the energy distribution properties of structural neural networks [24]: (1) the theory of neural energy coding is based on the use of a global concept of energy; (2) neurons release their stored energy within a very short time (negative energy) at the beginning of firing action potential, after which the oxyhemoglobin provides them with biological energy, and this mechanism contradicts the traditional theory of pure energy consumption in neurons; (3) the distribution of the negative energy, as assessed by parameter studies, reflects the neural network parameters and neural oscillation with a high consistency.
For example, hESC-derived cardiomyocytes typically have a small size (membrane capacity 18 pF versus 150 pF in adult cardiomyocytes) and a circular or irregular shape (versus rod-shape in adult), exhibit no T-tubules (present in adult and critical for excitation-contraction coupling), and use glucose as the primary metabolic substrate (versus fatty acid in adult), a more depolarized resting membrane potential (-60 mV versus -90 mV in adult), and a much slower action potential upstroke maximum velocity (50 V/s versus 250 V/s in adult) [35].
