Table 2Summary of the whole-cell properties of neurons in CS or room temperature-incubated, vibratome-cut slices
The errors represent standard deviation. aSignificant difference with respect to data obtained from slices incubated at 19–21°C. The mp's at which the IPSP's were evoked were not significantly different between the room temperature-incubated (−59.56±5.07 mV) and CS neurons (−59.63±2.85 mV).
