Module 10: Figure slow oscillation mechanism

Slow oscillation mechanisms.

This hypothetical scheme describes the main mechanisms that have been implicated in the neuronal slow membrane potential (Vm) oscillations that are characterized by periodic Up (red panels) and Down (green panels) states. See text for a description of the major ion channels and the role of Ca2+ in generating these oscillations. The information used to construct this Figure was obtaines from Crunelli et al., 2005; Crunelli et al., 2006; Errington et al., 2012.
