Intrinsic Physiology and Morphology of Single Academic Article uri icon


  • Neocortical neurons are eclectic in function, shape, and chemistry. Here we review a relatively neglected topic of neocortical biology, its cellular neurophysiology. Our central premise is that neurons of the neocortex display variations in membrane properties, and that these are correlated with other characteristics of the cells. Current methods allow specification of neuronal morphology, synaptology, biochemistry, intrinsic physiology, and gene expression, and each measurement has reinforced the view that neocortex is …
