Abstract

Electrical stimulation of a dendrite induces an EPSP that in the context of normal activation of the membrane can be recorded with a smaller amplitude at the soma (top). Additional activation of an inhibitory synapse on the way to the soma leads to shunting currents and prevents further transmission to the soma (bottom).
