Neuromodulation of vertebrate motor neuron membrane properties

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikel

The short-term function of motor neurons is to integrate synaptic inputs converging onto the somato-dendritic membrane and to transform the net synaptic drive into spike trains. A set of voltage-gated ion channels determines the electro-responsiveness and thereby the motor neuron's input-output function. In addition, several of the decisive ion channels are transmitter controlled, which results in a flexible control of the input-output relationship.
