spike half-width

Common definition: Calculated as the AP duration at the membrane voltage halfway between AP threshold and AP peak. Most commonly calculated using first AP in train at rheobase. current.

Electrophysiological values of spike half-width across neuron types from literature:

    Standardization criteria:
  • Values manually standardized case-by-case to correspond to calculation definition of AP width at half-max amplitude. Since authors use different APs for defining spike half-width (i.e., evoked using rheobase current, via synaptic input, etc.), please refer to individual articles for specific methodology.
