Dorsal root ganglion cell (Definition)

Electrophysiological properties of Dorsal root ganglion cells from literature:

  • Reports: Blue dots indicate human-curated values; Orange dots indicate non-human curated values
  • Mean+SD: mean and standard deviation of human-curated neuron measurements
  • All neurons: mean and standard deviation computed over all neurons in database
  • Interactivity:
  • Mouse over neuron report data points and click to view corresponding publication
  • Mouse over y- axis labels to view definition or click to view values across neuron types
  • Zoom in on a section of plot by dragging cursor. Zoom out by double clicking on plot.
  • Legend: Blue dots = text-mined values human curated; Orange dots = text-mined values not human curated
