membrane time constant

Common definition: Time constant for the membrane to repolarize after a small current injection of fixed amplitude and duration

Electrophysiological values of membrane time constant across neuron types from literature:

    Standardization criteria:
  • Values corrected for differences in units, but are otherwise unchanged. Refer to individual articles for specific definitions and calculation methodologies.
  • Legend:
  • Blue dots = text-mined values human curated; Orange dots = text-mined values not human curated
  • Interactivity:
  • Mouse over neuron report data points and click to view corresponding publication
  • Click on neuron name axis labels (e.g. Dentate gyrus granule cell) to view corresponding neuron page
  • Zoom in on a section of plot by dragging cursor. Zoom out by double clicking on plot.
