The Rappaport Research Institute is excited to announce the publication of the following paper, “Properties of basal dendrites of layer 5 pyramidal neurons: a direct patch-clamp recording study”, co-authored by Professor Jackie Schiller, in the February 2007 (Vol 10 No.2) issue of Nature Neuroscience.
The paper reports on Prof. Schiller’s recent research findings in the field of basal dendrites. Patch-clamp recording from dendrites, the method employed by Prof. Schiller in her research, has lead to a significant increase in scientists’ understanding of the mechanisms underlying signal integration and propagation in neurons and opens up the way to investigate cortical thin structures in general previously inaccessible by standard methods.
