The time difference between the ends of repolarization on the two monophasic action potentials was used as a measure of the dispersion of ventricular repolarization, and the signed value of the monophasic action potential duration difference was used to specify the contributions of the activation time difference and the monophasic action potential duration difference to the dispersion of ventricular repolarization. During right ventricular pacing, single and double programmed stimulation and at the induction of ventricular arrhythmias, the dispersion of ...
Myocardial ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury represents a constellation of pathological processes that occur when ischemic myocardium experiences a restoration of perfusion. Reentrant arrhythmias, which represent a particularly lethal manifestation of IR injury, can result when ischemic tissue exhibits decreased excitability and/or changes of action potential duration (APD), conditions that precipitate unidirectional conduction block. Many of the cellular components that are involved with IR injury are modulated by pH and/or phosphometabolites such as ATP and phosphocreatine (PCr), all of which can be manipulated in vivo and potentially in the clinical setting. Using a mathematical model of the cardiomyocyte that we previously developed to study ischemia and reperfusion, we performed a series of simulations with the aim of determining whether pH- or phosphometabolite-related processes play a more significant role in generating changes in excitability and action potential morphology that are associated

The combination of the ATCHI stain and microelectrode impalements has shown that the distribution of the RBB and Purkinje fibers of the mouse conduction system is, in general, similar to that reported in other species.14,15 However, in the mouse strain investigated (Swiss Webster), we found that the RBB was, very frequently, intimately associated with the septal artery in the right ventricle and could be visualized under bright field as white fibers running along the artery in base to apex direction. Our investigation provides the first available data on the action potential properties of the murine His-Purkinje system.. Several of the electrophysiological characteristics presented in this study are consistent with data from Purkinje cells from other species.15,32 In one of these studies, action potential properties of Purkinje cells were profiled in cow, sheep, and canine.32 The freshly isolated cells had a maximum diastolic potential of −70 and −85 mV, upstroke velocity of 150 to 750 V/s, ...
Antibodies for proteins involved in positive regulation of voltage-gated potassium channel activity involved in ventricular cardiac muscle cell action potential repolarization pathways, according to their Panther/Gene Ontology Classification
The regulation of a K(+) current activating during oscillatory electrical activity (I(K,slow)) in an insulin-releasing beta-cell was studied by applying the perforated patch whole-cell technique to intact mouse pancreatic islets. The resting whole-cell conductance in the presence of 10 mM glucose amounted to 1.3 nS, which rose by 50 % during a series of 26 simulated action potentials. Application of the K(ATP)-channel blocker tolbutamide produced uninterrupted action potential firing and reduced I(K,slow) by approximately 50 %. Increasing glucose from 15 to 30 mM, which likewise converted oscillatory electrical activity into continuous action potential firing, reduced I(K,slow) by approximately 30 % whilst not affecting the resting conductance. Action potential firing may culminate in opening of K(ATP) channels by activation of ATP-dependent Ca(2+) pumping as suggested by the observation that the sarco-endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase (SERCA) inhibitor thapsigargin (4 microM) inhibited I(K,slow) by
This question shows a good amount of intuition. It is true that the signal is generally thought to diffuse passively. However, active propagation of dendritic signals is certainly an important property. As opposed to the axon, where the action potential is generated by voltage-gated sodium (Na+) channels, in the dendrites, the voltage gated channels are calcium (Ca2+) channels (VGCC -- voltage gated calcium channels) or non-specific cation (Na+, K+, and Ca2+) channels such as the NMDA channel. The voltage gated nature of these excitatory channels leads to a positive feedback effect similar to that of the action potential itself. However, the time course of these signals is much slower: on the order of 10s to 100s of milliseconds, as opposed to the 1ms time scale of the action potential. These dendritic spikes or calcium spikes or plateau potentials can lead to firing of bursts of action potentials. As a side point, action potentials generated in the soma can actually be propagated backwards ...

A single action potential can travel down the axon. It does not exist at multiple points on the axon at the same time. The active part of the HH model describes the generation of an action potential at a single point. The passive part describes how the action potential travels down the axon. The main problem of passive travel is that the action potential dies down (after one space constant, the action potential will be very small). So nodes of Ranvier have to be spaced much shorter than the space constant in order to regenerate the amplitude of the action potential ...
Squid giant axons internally perfused with a 30 mM NaF solution and bathed in a 100 mM CaCl2 solution, which are known to produce long lasting action potentials in response to pulses of outward current, were investigated. The effects of tetrodotoxin (TTX) and of tetraethylammonium ion (TEA+) on such action potentials were studied. The results are summarized as follows: (a) An addition of 1--3 microM TTX to the external solution altered but did not block the action potentials; it increased the height of the action potential by approximately 15 mV, and it decreased the membrane conductance as the peak of excitation by about two-thirds. (b) Voltage-clamp experiments performed with both NaCl and TTX in the external CaCl2 solution revealed that the TTX-insensitive action potential does not involve a rise in gNa, whereas the experiments performed without TTX showed that the action potential is accompanied by a large rise in gNa. (c) Internally applied TEA+ was shown to selectively block the ...

Acute myocardial ischemia is implicated in many cases of fatal arrhythmias.1 2 The basis of ischemic arrhythmogenesis is alteration in the electrical properties of ventricular tissue, leading to changes in action potential conduction.3 4 Altered electrical properties are a result of the pathophysiological conditions of ischemia, which directly affect membrane ionic currents and intracellular and extracellular ionic concentrations.5 6 Therefore, there exist cause-and-effect relationships between ischemia modification of membrane currents and ionic concentrations and ischemia-related changes in action potential conduction. We investigated these cause-and-effect relationships to determine the ionic mechanisms of depressed conduction and development of conduction block during acute ischemia.. Our investigative tool is a theoretical multicellular fiber model that accounts for the major conditions of ischemia at the level of individual ionic currents and concentrations. The fiber is composed of LRd ...
Information is encoded in neural circuits using both graded and action potentials, converting between them within single neurons and successive processing layers. This conversion is accompanied by information loss and a drop in energy efficiency. We investigate the biophysical causes of this loss of information and efficiency by comparing spiking neuron models, containing stochastic voltage-gated Na+ and K+ channels, with generator potential and graded potential models lacking voltage-gated Na+ channels. We identify three causes of information loss in the generator potential that are the by-product of action potential generation: (1) the voltage-gated Na+ channels necessary for action potential generation increase intrinsic noise and (2) introduce non-linearities, and (3) the finite duration of the action potential creates a footprint in the generator potential that obscures incoming signals. These three processes reduce information rates by ~50% in generator potentials, to ~3 times that of ...
In this work, detailed computational models are used to study the electrophysiology of normal epicardium and the arrhythmogenic effects of epicardial cell remodeling post-infarction. The canine epicardial myocyte model described here reproduces a wide range of experimentally observed rate dependent phenomena in cell and tissue. Model behavior depends on updated formulations for the 4-AP sensitive transient outward current: Ito1), the slow component of the delayed rectifier potassium current: IKs), the L-type Ca2+ channel: ICa,L) and the sodium-potassium pump: INaK) fit to data from canine ventricular myocytes. The model shows that Ito1 plays a limited role in potentiating peak ICa,L and Ca2+ release for propagated action potentials: APs), but modulates the time course of action potential duration: APD) restitution. IKs plays an important role in APD shortening at short diastolic intervals but a limited role in AP repolarization at longer cycle lengths. In addition, simulations demonstrate that ICa,L,

Corticotroph releasing hormone (CRH) is one of the major regulatory hormones associated with the neuroendocrine response to stress. Pituitary corticotroph cells generate repetitive action potentials and associated Ca2+ transients in response to the agonist CRH. The mechanisms underlying this process are complex. CRH is known to activate the adenosine 3,5-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP)-dependent protein kinase A (PKA) pathway. PKA phosphorylates L-type voltage-sensitive Ca2+ channels, activating them and contributing to the generation of an action potential and Ca2+ transients. In an earlier Hodgkin-Huxley type mathematical model of this process, LeBeau et al. showed than an increase in the L-type current was sufficient to generate repetitive action potentials from a resting state in the model (LeBeau et al., 1997). However, they found that the action potential frequency of the model was much higher than the observed experimental action potential frequency. This problem was addressed in the ...
Previous studies have reported that enhanced antiarrhythmic effects occur when agents that prolong repolarization are combined with agents that block the sodium channels. The mechanism(s) of this interaction have not been elucidated. In this study, the interactions between the prolongation of action potential duration (APD) by a potassium channel blocker and the reduction in the maximal upstroke velocity of phase 0 of action potential (Vmax) by sodium channel blockers were investigated in guinea pig papillary muscle using conventional microelectrode techniques. Agents that produce selective electrophysiologic effects were chosen, including low concentrations of barium chloride (BaCl2), which selectively blocks the inwardly rectifying potassium current without effects on other repolarizing or depolarizing currents, O-demethyl-encainide (ODME), which blocks the activated sodium channel with slow onset/offset kinetics, and mexiletine, which preferentially blocks the inactivated sodium channel with ...
In this simulation action potential initiation, action potential properties and the role of axon initial segment Na+ channels are investigated in a realistic model of a layer 5 pyramidal neuron axon initial segment. The main Na+ channel properties were constrained by experimental data and the axon initial segment was reconstructed. Model parameters were constrained by direct recordings at the axon initial segment ...
The action potential is fundamental to information processing in the brain. Neurons fire action potentials in response to a variety of inputs and action potentials exist in many different shapes, sizes and frequencies. In this course we will begin with a study of ion channels, the membrane bound biochemical switches that give the action potential its shape. Then we will explore the numerous factors that influence the nature of an individual action potential: neuronal morphology, ion channel composition, and intracellular signaling cascades. We will conclude by considering how circuits of diverse neuronal phenotypes integrate synaptic signals, which give rise to sophisticated information processing, learning and memory, and psychiatric disease. Student projects will explore how ion channel abnormalities, so-called "channelopathies," influence cognition and behavior.. ...
Summary To understand how the brain works, tools need to be developed that will allow neuroscientists to investigate how interactions between individual neurons lead to emergent networks. Towards this goal, we will develop targetable voltage sensing nanorods that self-insert into the cell membrane and optically and non-invasively record action potentials at the single particle and nanoscale level, at multiple sites and across a large field-of-view. In semiconductors, absorption and emission band edges are modulated by an external electric field, even more so when optically excited electron-hole pairs are confined, giving rise to the quantum confined Stark effect. The physical origin of this effect is in the separation of photoexcited charges, creating a dipole that opposes the external field. The proposed sensors will optically record action potential with unique advantages not offered by other methods: much larger voltage sensitivity, high brightness, and hence single-particle voltage ...
In neurophysiology, several mathematical models of the action potential have been developed, which fall into two basic types. The first type seeks to model the experimental data quantitatively, i.e., to reproduce the measurements of current and voltage exactly. The renowned Hodgkin-Huxley model of the axon from the Loligo squid exemplifies such models. Although qualitatively correct, the H-H model does not describe every type of excitable membrane accurately, since it considers only two ions (sodium and potassium), each with only one type of voltage-sensitive channel. However, other ions such as calcium may be important and there is a great diversity of channels for all ions. As an example, the cardiac action potential illustrates how differently shaped action potentials can be generated on membranes with voltage-sensitive calcium channels and different types of sodium/potassium channels. The second type of mathematical model is a simplification of the first type; the goal is not to reproduce ...
The reliability and temporal precision of signal propagation between neurons is a major constraint for different coding strategies in neuronal networks. In systems that rely on rate coding, input-output functions of neurons are classically described as ratios of mean firing rates, and the precise timing of individual action potentials is not considered a meaningful parameter (Shadlen and Newsome, 1994, 1998). In these systems, synchrony of presynaptic action potentials and reliable synaptic transmission have even been implicated to deteriorate the information content of the postsynaptic spike train (Zador, 1998). For the functioning of a temporal code in neuronal networks, on the other hand, the precision and reliability of synaptic integration is a prerequisite (Abeles, 1991; Konig et al., 1996; Mainen and Sejnowski, 1995; Nowak et al., 1997; Roy and Alloway, 2001), and without exact spike timing in the millisecond range, synchronous activity among neurons that putatively form a functional cell ...
Using the injury potential method, researchers found that certain cells, classified as excitable, suffered sudden and transitory alterations in resting potential, with later return to the initial value (Fig. 1-B). This cycle was named cellular action potential. In 1883, Burdon-Sanderson and Page 2 obtained continuous recordings of the potentials generated by frog cardiac beats. In one of their observations, when an electrode was placed on the intact surface of the heart and another on an injured region, transitory monophasic potential (only one polarity) was recorded in opposition to the known transitory multiphase recordings (positive and negative polarities). This was the origin of the term monophasic action potential (MAP), whose form was very similar to the cellular action potential later obtained by the cellular impalement technique with microelectrodes (IT). In the late 19th century, it was already known that the electric currents generated in each cardiac beat could be detected on the ...
Whole-cell patch-clamp recordings were obtained using Multiclamp 700B patch amplifiers (Molecular Devices), and data were analyzed using pClamp 10 software (Molecular Devices). To characterize basic membrane properties, a series of hyperpolarizing and depolarizing current steps were applied for 500 ms in 10-45 pA increments at 5 s intervals. The action potential threshold was determined for the first spike at the lowest level of depolarizing current required to evoke at least one spike. Action potential spike measurements were taken from the first action potential on the first sweep to reach the threshold. Spike height was measured as the peak membrane voltage relative to threshold, and half-width was measured at the half amplitude of the action potential. Input resistance was determined from the slope of the linear regression taken through the voltage-current relationship in the hyperpolarizing range.. To determine connectivity among C4- and C8-projecting cell populations, simultaneous ...
The cardiac cell action potential, like action potentials in nerves, is divided into five phases, numbered 0 through 4. Two of these, phase 2 (the plateau phase) and phase 4 (the diastolic interval) are marked by little to no change in voltage. Sodium, potassium and calcium are the primary ions.
Mechanisms of action potential (AP) generation in neocortical pyramidal cells have been the focus of intense experimental and theoretical research over the last several decades. It has proven very difficult, however, to arrive at a consensus model which can satisfactorily account for all of its features. One of the still unresolved issues is lack of accurate description of Na+ channel kinetics in different neuronal compartments. Here, we measured kinetics of somatic Na+ channels using high temporal resolution (5-10 kHz, −3dB, low pass four-pole Bessel filter) cell-attached recordings from layer 5 pyramidal neurons in neocortical slices. The data were described by fitting different Markov models with differential evolution fit algorithms. The limited speed of voltage steps and the effect of current filtering were accounted for in the fit procedure. Hodgkin-Huxley-type models which assumed a number of independent activation gates were not the optimal description of the experimentally recorded ...
Action potentials in cardiac myocytes have durations in the order of magnitude of 100 milliseconds. In biomedical investigations the documentation of the occurrence of action potentials is often not sufficient, but a recording of the shape of an action potential allows a functional estimation of several molecular players. Therefore a temporal resolution of around 500 images per second is compulsory. In the past such measurements have been performed with photometric approaches limiting the measurement to one cell at a time. In contrast, imaging allows reading out several cells at a time with additional spatial information. Recent developments in camera technologies allow the acquisition with the required speed and sensitivity. We performed action potential imaging on isolated adult cardiomyocytes of guinea pigs utilizing the fluorescent membrane potential sensor di-8-ANEPPS and latest electron-multiplication CCD as well as scientific CMOS cameras of several manufacturers. Furthermore, we ...
The combination of the rapid and large voltage changes during action potentials and the large sodium current density in Purkinje neurons required careful tuning of the voltage-clamp circuitry for series resistance compensation, as well as reduction of the sodium current to reduce errors arising from imperfect compensation.. A particular concern was whether the overall system, including the partially compensated resistance of the pipette in series with the cell capacitance, allows faithful imposition of voltage using the very narrow spike waveforms of Purkinje neurons, which can have widths at half-amplitude of about 200 μs. In previous experiments (Carter and Bean 2009), we did control experiments using a second electrode to record intracellular voltage while a cell was voltage clamped with a spike waveform. These experiments showed that the action potential command voltage was accurately imposed on the cell membrane, with measured voltage at the peak of the action potential differing from the ...

This experiment deals with the basic principles behind sodium ion channels in neurons and their effects on action potentials or spikes, how gating properties regulate channel behavior and influence firing.
A method was developed to non-invasively and simultaneously track individual action-potentials propagating across multiple branches of identified neurons in neocortical cultures.
With just-suprathreshold current pulses, FS cells often displayed a considerable delay before the first spike, whereas GIN cells did not (cf. Fig. 2, C and D, top panels). In addition, GIN cells often displayed an afterdepolarization (ADP) following low-frequency action potentials (Fig. 2C, inset; cf. Halabisky et al. 2006). At higher levels of stimulus current, spike frequency adaptation was evident in GIN cells (Fig. 2D, bottom), but not in FS cells (Fig. 2D, bottom). Finally, at higher stimulus currents, the peak of the first action potential in GIN cells was the most positive in the train and the trough of the first afterhyperpolarization (AHP) was the most negative (Fig. 2C, bottom). By contrast, the action potential heights and AHP magnitudes of FS cells changed little under similar conditions (Fig. 2D, bottom). The firing of GIN cells also differed from that of RS cells, whose second action potential peak was substantially more negative than the first and whose first AHP was the most ...
Animal models of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons are widely used in pain research as in vitro models of human nociception, due to a lack of human-specific alternatives. However, these models do not capture human-specific electrophysiology, including differences in ion channel function, and do not address significant inter-neuronal variability, e.g. differences in ion channel expression and action potential morphology between DRG neuron sub-types. This heterogeneity is difficult to address through experiments alone but can result in variable responses to therapies and disease.. We have developed a method for integrating biological variability with in silico modelling, using experimentally-calibrated populations of models, and have used this approach extensively in cardiac electrophysiology. We propose integrating new recordings of human DRG neuron electrophysiology, provided by our collaboration with Anabios Corporation,with our methodology to construct and validate populations of in silico ...

Thank you, Dr. Ferber- but let me clarify my question- Were making current clamp recordings, and injecting square current pulses whilst in current clamp. Our amplifier seems to turn off capacitance/series resistance compensation in current clamp mode, though Im not so sure. In our preparation, a strong inward rectifying current is expected to be seen in medium spiny neurons by applying hyperpolarizing pulses. Weve been applying 20 pA steps from 0 to -1nA (the maximum current injection possible for our amplifier), yet we do not see any inward rectification. Inward rectification is a defining characteristic of medium spiny neurons. These cells have been labelled iontophoretically with neurobiotin, and we see that they are indeed medium spiny neurons. Weve checked our intracellular and ACSF ionic concentrations against what others are using, and find no great difference. The cell fires what appear to be normal action potentials with depolarizing pulses in current clamp. Im thinking that ...

The latency and amplitude of the NMEP are followed closely throughout the surgical period. A 60% decrease in amplitude or a 10% increase in latency is a possible warning sign of spinal cord injury. [11-15] The degree of muscle relaxation can influence the waveform of the neurogenic response through the presence of myogenic artifact contamination or elicited compound muscle action potentials. As demonstrated in the first case, the evoked response being followed had its amplitude increased by a factor of 52 and the latency prolonged by 30%. This high-amplitude, long-latency response directly correlated with the patients degree of muscle relaxation. In both cases, the monitored waveforms returned to a typical neurogenic response appearance within 5 min of an increase in the patients level of neuromuscular blockade. Owen reported, when a patient has two of four muscle twitches (with traditional visual evaluation of train-of-four (TOF) muscle twitch monitoring), the NMEP will contain a myogenic ...
The different time- and voltage-dependence of the ionic currents involved in LQTS may help explain some aspects of the variable phenotype and raise the possibility of gene-specific treatment. Indeed, available data on several hundred genotyped patients indicate the existence of gene-specific differences in the triggers for cardiac events.28 Exercise-related events dominate the clinical picture in IKs-related LQTS (LQT1).28 IKs is the predominant K+ current in conditions of high sympathetic activity, particularly at shorter cycle lengths. Thus, reduced IKs will be predicted to lead to inadequate action potential shortening with adrenergic stress and thereby account for the high prevalence of arrhythmic events in these patients during exercise. By contrast, most LQT3 patients experience events during sleep or at rest; they are also able to markedly shorten their QT interval during exercise.29 In this case, it seems likely that the presence of normal K+ currents produces normal action potential ...
Deformation of neuron structure can induce abnormalities in action potential propagation in nervous system, which is a potential threat from viewpoint of medical science.The effect of geometrical changes and deformation of neuron structure on the propagation of action potential has been studied theoretically. The theoretical model is based on modified cable equation considering spatial changes of the neuron structure, incorporating the different ionic currents components. The results of our analysis reveal that the morphology of the neuron has a significant effect on properties of action potential propagation in the neuron. We have shown that alteration of the velocity of propagation, and the broadening of action potential pulses directly correspond to the changes in the morphology of neuron fiber. The rates of changes in the above mentioned electrophysiological parameters accord with the rate and type of shape deformation ...
40 mV) because each action potential releases only one or a few vesicles rather than the 100 or so vesicles released at the endplate. Activation of neurons depends on temporal summation of many small EPSPs arriving at a high frequency from the same presynaptic neuron and on spatial summation of small EPSPs arriving simultaneously from many presynaptic neurons. In contrast, only a single presynaptic neuron synapses with each muscle cell, every EPP reaches action potential threshold (producing a twitch), and temporal summation of EPPs does not occur (instead, temporal summation of twitches is important). The changes in permeability, expressed in terms of conductance (g), that underlie the action potential in axons are shown in Figure 3-2.

We demonstrate here that Kv1 subunit-containing channels are primarily responsible for repolarizing action potentials in the axon collaterals and their presynaptic en passant terminals of layer 5 cortical pyramidal neurons. Furthermore, we observed that subthreshold depolarization of the soma broadened action potentials in axon collaterals, an effect that was blocked with low concentrations of Kv1 channel antagonists. Using simple models with different distributions of D-current, we show that the broadening of action potentials in axon collaterals with subthreshold somatic depolarization requires the presence of Kv1 subunit-containing channels throughout the axon collaterals. Hence, broadening of spikes through the local inactivation of Kv1 channels may play an important role in voltage-dependent modulation of local synaptic transmission (Kole et al., 2007; Shu et al., 2007).. Far from simply disseminating all-or-none impulses from a presynaptic neuron to its targets, the cortical pyramidal ...
What I am confused about is why the action potential goes negative first before then going back up. From my readings online, I thought that the action potentials were meant to go up first then travel down and then continue on its course. If it helps I used a program called audacity to record the action potentials ...
An implantable device applies and controls a neural stimulus. The device has a plurality of electrodes, and a stimulus source for providing a stimulus to be delivered from the electrodes to a neural pathway in order to evoke an action potential on the neural pathway, such as the spinal cord. A control unit controls application of a neural stimulus as defined by a set of parameter values and measures via measurement circuitry an evoked neural compound action potential response. The control unit determines from the measured evoked response a feedback variable, and compares it to a therapy map. The therapy map defines a therapeutic relationship of control variable to feedback variable. One or more of the stimulus parameter values are altered to effect the required change in the control variable. This process is performed iteratively to improve alignment of the feedback variable with the therapy map over time.
This review summarizes estimates for cytoplasmic-free concentrations of Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP, ([Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP,],SUB,i,/SUB,) and Mg,SUP,2+,/SUP, ([Mg,SUP,2+,/SUP,],SUB,i,/SUB,) at rest and during contraction of skeletal muscles, from which substantial quantitative information about them has been accumulated. Although the estimates of resting [Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP,],SUB,i,/SUB, in the literature widely differ, which is because of the variety of difficulties related to different methodologies used, recent studies suggest that estimates of resting [Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP,],SUB,i,/SUB, of approximately 0.05-0.1 μM are likely to be correct. Following action potential propagation, the Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP, release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum causes a transient rise of [Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP,],SUB,i,/SUB, (Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP, transient). The large peak amplitude and brief time course of the Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP, transients have been established only recently by studies with low-affinity Ca,SUP,2+,/SUP, indicators developed in the past ...
Neural computation is energetically expensive, and the brains limited energy supply imposes constraints on its information processing capability. How the brain has evolved to perform computational tasks within these energetic constraints is largely unknown. The theoretical and experimental work in this thesis examines how the white and grey matter - which have different computational roles - balance the trade-off between energy consumption and signalling. In the white matter, I show that the maintenance of cellular resting potentials accounts for the largest portion of signalling-related energy use. Maintaining this cost in myelinating oligodendrocytes outweighs the energetic saving on action potentials that myelin provides, but allows for faster action potential propagation. This design places computational benefit above energetic economy. Nevertheless, I show that action potential propagation in the white matter need not rely on metabolic collaboration of axons with oligodendrocytes, and that ...

Peripheral neural responses to cochlear stimulation via electrically evoked compound action potentials (ECAPs) of differing pulse distance and interphase gap
Background: A contracting muscle is a source of the plasma K+ concentration increase during physical exercise. The flux of K+ from contracting skeletal muscle to blood is related to the frequency of cells action potential. The elevated blood [K+] may result in the heart rate irregularities and interferes with the way nerves send signals. But plasma increased [K+] recovers rapidly to normal if a regulating mechanism takes action. The aim of this study was to evaluate the participation of processes restoring the balance in blood [K+] after prolonged submaximal exercise. Material/Methods: Nineteen healthy, young, physically active men performed the 120-min submaximal cycling (intensity below individual AT). Measurements were made of urine, plasma and hemolysed whole blood collected before and after a 2-h cycloergometric exercise and after 1h, 2h and also after 24h recovery to quantify the excretion of K+ to urine and the relative contribution of plasma and erythrocytes to the place where K+ is ...

As in mice, we performed dual optical and electrical recordings to verify the spike trains, this time using whole-cell patch-clamp electrodes to access LN neurons intracellular potentials in intact fly brain explants (Fig. 4C, left). Across 18,141 recorded spikes, the spike trains provided by Ace2N-2AA-mNeon perfectly matched those from the patch-clamp recordings (N = 4 fly brains) and had spike-timing errors of 0.19 ± 0.002 ms (SEM; N = 18,141 spikes), close to the theoretical optimum of 0.11 ± 0.03 ms (Fig. 4C, right). Subthreshold dynamics were readily apparent in the optical traces, including plateau potentials and the rising and falling voltage waveforms surrounding action potentials. Ace2N-2AA-mNeon also reported the submillisecond-scale dynamics of spike back-propagation into the dendritic tree, revealing ~0.5- to 1.0-ms delays between the initiating voltage peak at the soma and those in the dendrites (Fig. 4D and movie S2).. We next imaged olfactory projection neurons (PNs), which ...

As the diagram shows, there are three main parts to a neuron: dendritic tree, the soma (cell body), and the axon. The diagram also displays the myelin sheath and the terminal boutons (it calls them buttons), but those are only tangentially pertinent to the discussion of brain waves. The axon is a neurons main method of sending a signal, via what is known as an action potential, to a target cell. The dendritic tree is where most action potentials are received by a neuron, although sometime signals are also received on the soma - this will be important later and discussed in further detail. The junction between an axon and a dendrite is known as a synapse. Neurons generate a resting potential across their cell membranes of approximately -70mV with respect to the surrounding interstitial fluid. For a neuron to fire an action potential it must be excited to below some threshold. Exciting a neuron is typically caused by synapses in the dendritic tree, where an incoming action potential triggers a ...

Electrical extracellular recordings, i.e., recordings of the electrical potentials in the extracellular medium between cells, have been a main work-horse in electrophysiology for almost a century. The high-frequency part of the signal (|=500 Hz), i.e., themulti-unit activity (MUA), contains information about the firing of action potentials in surrounding neurons, while the low-frequency part, the local field potential (LFP), contains information about how these neurons integrate synaptic inputs. As the recorded extracellular signals arise from multiple neural processes, their interpretation is typically ambiguous and difficult. Fortunately, a precise biophysical modeling scheme linking activity at the cellular level and the recorded signal has been established: the extracellular potential can be calculated as a weighted sum of all transmembrane currents in all cells located in the vicinity of the electrode. This computational scheme can considerably aid the modeling and analysis of MUA and LFP signals
Action potentials are used in neurons to conduct signals along the axon and occur in electrically excitable cells like neurons and cardiac muscle cells. The action potentials travel in a wave along the membrane causing the voltage sensitive channels to open to allow influx of Na+ thereby causing the conduction of the signal along the axon. The resting membrane potential of cells including neurons is -70mv. An action potential is generated by a change in the membrane potential from -70mv to +40mv when voltage gated ion channels open altering membrane permeability to Na+ and K+. ...

Communication between neurons is of utmost importance for the body to carryout any action. As such, neurons have a unique way of signaling each other. This signaling is accomplished through action potentials. Action potentials are much like electrical signals in that they travel along the axon, like electricity down a wire. The membrane potential of a neuron is maintained by ion concentrations inside and outside the cell. Ion channels open and close to allow ions to pass in and out of the cell to maintain a constant resting membrane potential of -70 mV. Since the membrane is negative, this state is called polarized. When the neuron get stimulated, the sodium channels open and a large influx of sodium ions go into the cell. At this stage, the cell becomes depolarized. This influx of positive charge causes the cells potential to become positive. The spike in charge is called an action potential. Once the potential goes up to roughly +30mV the sodium channels close (Stufflebeam, 2008). Then, the ...

I thought myelin sheaths were used to make action potentials move faster, but action potentials dissipate as they move through myelinated areas. The nodes of Ranvier boost action potentials as they have voltage-gated sodium channels that open… Also, action potentials dont actually jump from node to node. They just appear to jump because they move slower at non-insulated areas…. ...

A computing system includes an application object, a computer based training instruction object (INSTRUCTION object) and an agent engine. The INSTRUCTION object runs concurrently with the application object. The application objects includes a first action processor and a first command processor. The first action processor receives messages which indicate syntactic actions taken by the user and generates semantic commands based on the syntactic actions. The first command processor receives the semantic commands from the first action processor and executes the semantic commands. The INSTRUCTION object receives input from a user through syntactic actions and displays information on a monitor. The information instructs a user as to operation of the first application. The INSTRUCTION object may include an INSTRUCTION action processor and an INSTRUCTION command processor. The INSTRUCTION action processor receives messages which indicate syntactic actions taken by the user and generates semantic commands

Rotors or vortex action potentials with a diameter of about 1 centimeter and a rotation period of about 0.1 second occur in normal myocardium just before transition to fibrillation, a disorderly pattern of action potential propagation. Numerical models and corresponding mathematical analysis have recently suggested candidate mechanisms, all two-dimensional, for this transition from periodic electrical activity to something resembling turbulence. However, comparably recent experiments unanimously show that rotors, and the spiral waves they radiate, remain stably periodic in two-dimensional myocardium. This seeming paradox suggests a transition mediated through disorderly dynamics of the electrical vortex in three dimensions, as a "vortex filament." ...

Author Summary Spike initiation determines how the combined inputs to a neuron are converted to an output. Since the pioneering work of Hodgkin and Huxley, it is known that spikes are generated by the opening of sodium channels with depolarization. According to this standard theory, these channels should open gradually when the membrane potential increases, but spikes measured at the soma appear to suddenly rise from rest. This apparent contradiction has triggered a controversy about the origin of spike

Once a channel is open, the membrane depolarizes at the location on the cellular membrane. Channels, which are next to this open as a result fo the changing potential and the change moves along the membrane opening even more channels. This is called propagation. The potential at which propagation occurs is called teh action potential. It is a go/no go electrical signal, but when the action potential is reached it is all go and the signal will propagate. ...
