first spike latency

Common definition: Duration to first AP following a depolarizing current step of fixed amplitude

Electrophysiological values of first spike latency across neuron types from literature:

    Standardization criteria:
  • Values are unchanged from those reported. Since authors use different APs for defining first spike latency (e.g., evoked using rheobase current, via synaptic input, etc.), please refer to individual articles for specific methodology.
  • Legend:
  • Blue dots = text-mined values human curated; Orange dots = text-mined values not human curated
