Sample text

A burst of spikes in a neuron activates the cortical network, which generates a strong burst of action potentials through intracortical recurrent excitatory connections. This activity strongly activates both local GABAergic neurons and thalamic reticular neurons. The buildup of K+ currents, including the activation of GABAB receptors and the inactivation of depolarizing currents such as the low-threshold Ca2+ spike in thalamocortical cells, results in the cessation of activity in the network. The generation of a rebound Ca2+ spike in the thalamocortical cell 300 msec later initiates the next cycle of the oscillation.
