I can't find the answer to this anywhere, I've been googling for an hour or 
so...

In the sentance "5-HT bath applied on the hippocampal neurons caused a 
dose-dependent hyperpolarisation and a drop in input resistance"; what do 
they mean by input resistance? And what are the physiological correlates of 
it?

I get the feeling its basically means a drop in membrane resistance, and 
hence less current is needed to alter the cells potential differnce?
