Table 2Summary of effects of chronic ethanol treatment on passive membrane properties at 15 DIV
Chronic ethanol (n=16)
Resting membrane potential (mV)
Peak hyperpolarization (MΩ)
Sustained hyperpolarization (MΩ)
Sustained depolarization (MΩ)
aInput resistances were calculated separately from the slopes of the input–output curves generated by injecting standardized constant current pulses (±30 to ±150 pA; 500 ms) and measuring the peak and sustained voltage in response to hyperpolarizing current and the sustained voltage in response to depolarizing current.bIndicates a trend for the chronic ethanol treatment group to be different from the control group (0.05≤P<0.10, unpaired t-test); other measurements were not affected by chronic ethanol (P>0.10). All values are the mean±S.E.M. and represent combined data from studies performed in the presence and absence of TTX.
