I have posted a message similar to this one a few months ago, and didn't
receive a strong response (make that no response). I'd like to try it
again, with the plea of receiving e-mail from anybody having any
information, comments, questions, thoughts, etc. about the matter.
My interest is this: for studied neurons, what are typical channel
densities of post-synaptic connections (both excitatory and inhibitory)? I've
heard that often there is a larger inhibitory channel density
(data possibly expressed as conductance per unit area of patch of membrane)
than excitatory. Any ideas about the number of channels (excitatory or
inhibitory) for a given nerve cell?
I'm interested in ANY information (references, etc.). Thanks in advance.
