spike threshold

Common definition: Voltage at which AP is initiated (as assessed by measuring rising slope of membrane voltage)

Electrophysiological values of spike threshold across neuron types from literature:

    Standardization criteria:
  • Values are unchanged from those reported. Refer to individual articles for specific calculation methodology, such as voltage slope criterion for AP threshold determination or which APs are used to define spike theshold (i.e., evoked using rheobase current, via synaptic input, etc.).
  • Legend:
  • Blue dots = text-mined values human curated; Orange dots = text-mined values not human curated
  • Interactivity:
  • Mouse over neuron report data points and click to view corresponding publication
  • Click on neuron name axis labels (e.g. Dentate gyrus granule cell) to view corresponding neuron page
  • Zoom in on a section of plot by dragging cursor. Zoom out by double clicking on plot.
