- Postnatal development differentially affects voltage-activated calcium currents in respiratory rhythmic versus nonrhythmic neurons of the pre-Bötzinger complexFrank P Elsen
Department of Pediatrics, The University of Chicago, Chicago, IL 60637, USA
J Neurophysiol 94:1423-31. 2005..This may be critical for stable respiratory rhythm generation in the underlying rhythm generating network...

Department of Pediatrics, Computation Institute of the University of Chicago, Chicago, IL 60637 1470, USA
IEEE Trans Neural Syst Rehabil Eng 13:236-41. 2005..These results open a new avenue to explore network synchrony and may ultimately lead to a rational approach to treatment of network pathology in epilepsy...

- Carbenoxolone induced depression of rhythmogenesis in the pre-Bötzinger ComplexFrank P Elsen
Department of Neurology, Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI 53226, USA
BMC Neurosci 9:46. 2008..To do so we used a medullary slice preparation, network-level recordings, whole-cell voltage clamp, and glycyrrhizic acid (GZA; a substance used as a control for CBX, since it is similar in structure and does not block gap junctions)...
