Abstract

On guinea-pig neocortical slices the spatial organization of dendrites sensitive to excitatory amino acids was studied. Extracellular recordings were obtained from the soma of layer V neurons. Responses of 135neurons to iontophoretically applied glutamate or aspartate have beenanalysed. An increased firing rate to somatic and most of dendritic applications were of short latency not exceeding 500 ms, Dendritic applications caused somatic responses with far longer latencies (up to 2-3s) in 18% of cases. Latencies of responses to excitatory amino acids applied to several dendritic sites of the same neuron had similar values. The greatest reactions were obtained in response to excitatory amino acids imposed to the soma and proximal dendrites. At a distance of 100 mu m beyond the soma in the basal region and further than 300 mu min the apical region excitatory amino acid applications produced two to three times less intensive somatic response. The area where dendritic activation gave rise to change in neuronal firing was confined to 350 and 800 mu m for basal and apical dendrites, respectively. Topography of effective dendritic sites fell into the area corresponding to anatomically known outline of dendritic tree of pyramidal neurons. This fact implies that in our experiments we basically dealt with layer V pyramids. The results obtained suggest that local activation of distal dendrites may elicit spike generation in the soma. Different electrical properties of somatic and dendritic membranes are discussed.
