Neuroscience: the chain reaction of dendritic integration

Abstract

Central neurons receive thousands of synaptic inputs. A recent study shows how pyramidal neurons of the mammalian neocortex integrate synaptic input in a parallel manner, illustrating how a chain of dendritic integration mechanisms act to signal distal dendritic excitatory synaptic input.
