firing frequency

Common definition: AP discharge rate, AP frequency, spike rate, firing rate, spike frequency, mean firing rate, steady state firing rate, average firing rate, steady firing rate

Electrophysiological values of firing frequency across neuron types from literature:

    Standardization criteria:
  • Values are unchanged from those reported and currently lump multiple measures, including maximal firing rate, spontaneous firing rate, etc. Refer to individual articles for definition and calculation methodology.
  • 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.
