Por que neurônios têm dendritos ativos?

Dendritic trees perform non-linear input-output transformations such that the capacity to distinguish between different stimulus intensities, measured by the dynamic range (Delta) increases monotonically with coupling p_lambda and the tree size (G [= number of biffurcations in the binary tree]). The tree topology can produce very large dynamic ranges (above 50 dB).

Dear Mr. Gollo,

I’m pleased to inform you that your article “Active Dendrites Enhance Neuronal Dynamic Range” has just been published in PLoS Computational Biology! You can view your paper here:

As an open-access journal, we encourage you to share this link with friends or colleagues, who may freely read, reproduce, distribute or use (with attribution) your paper. Feel free to translate it, post it to institutional archives, reproduce figures, add it to course packs, burn it onto CD or put it to use in any other way.
