Voltage sensing dye experiments and simulations characterize the location and re-polarizing function of Kv1 channels in cortical neurons. "... (the papers) results indicate that action potential-induced synaptic transmission may operate through a mix of analog–digital transmission owing to the properties of Kv1 channels in axon collaterals and presynaptic boutons."
Model Type: Neuron or other electrically excitable cell
Model Concept(s): Action Potentials
Simulation Environment: NEURON
