Somatic modulation of ectopic action potential initiation in distal axons

Abstract

Classically, action potentials are initiated at the axon initial segment (AIS) when the summed depolarizing events arising from the dendrites exceed a threshold value. Then, action potentials propagate along the axon before reaching presynaptic terminals where they cause local calcium influx and transmitter release. According to this scheme, the AIS is a major player since all propagated excitation is precisely initiated at this hot spot endowed with a high concentration of sodium channels.
