Passive and active membrane properties of lamina II neurones (irrespective of the EGFP-expression) classified according to
their firing patterns
Delayed firing neurones (D) (n = 21–30)
Gap firing neurones (G) (n = 43–48)
Initial bursting neurones (IB) (n = 62–65)
Mixed initial bursting/ gap firing neurones (IB/G) (n = 16–20)
Tonic firing neurones (T) (n = 8–10)
Other neurones (O) (n = 14–20)
Statistical significance was assessed by one-way ANOVA followed by a Mann–Whitney test corrected by the Bonferroni adjustment.
*, P < 0.05, **, P < 0.01 in the posthoc test, followed by the abbreviation of the group the comparison was made with. n, number of observations.
