PMID-20544831 The decade of the dendritic NMDA spike.

  • NMDA spikes occur in the finer basal, oblique, and tuft dendrites.
  • Typically 40-50 mV, up to 100's of ms in duration.
  • Look similar to cortical up-down states.
  • Permit / form the substrate for spatially and temporally local computation on the dendrites that can enhance the representational or computational repertoire of individual neurons.
