Cell and firing properties of mice subthalamic neurons

Cm(pF)Rin (MΩ)Burst-competent neurons
Wild type9.9  ± 0.4 (n = 15)301.2  ± 46 (n = 15)62% (13 of 21)

  • Basic cell properties (Cm,Rin) and proportions of burst-competent neurons in slices from wild-type and D1 receptor null mice (D1 −/−) are not significantly different. Cm, Cell capacity; Rin, input resistance.
