Abstract:
Most functional properties of human dendrites have been inferred from data obtained in model organisms. In this issue, Beaulieu-Laroche et al. record directly from human dendrites of cortical neurons and show that the considerably larger human neurons differ from rat neurons in the way they process synaptic signals.
