  • Comparisons for a given parameter are shown as follows:x < y, z indicates that the mean value of that parameter for cell type x is significantly less than that of cell types y and z. Differences were identified by one-way ANOVA for each parameter followed by Tukey's post hoc comparison if the means were found to be different at the p = 0.05 level. Significance levels:

  • F3-150  p < 0.001;

  • F3-151  p < 0.01;

  • F3-152  p < 0.05.

  • F3-a  AHP amplitude is compared by absolute value (e.g., −10 mV is “bigger” than −5 mV).
