Abstract

Activation of glutamate receptors generally increases neuronal excitability. However, Isaacson and Murphy show in olfactory bulb granule cells that NMDA receptor-mediated calcium influx couples to large conductance (BK) calcium-activated potassium channels. The resulting inhibition is long lasting, which may be critical to the operation of the dynamic circuitry of the bulb.
