Axonal Noise as a Source of Synaptic Variability

Figure 5

Variability of the AP width and height scales with axon diameter.

The power-law relationship is valid at both proximal (left-pointed triangle) and distal (right-pointed triangle) points in all four types of axons. (A) Log-log plot of CV of AP height over diameter for a rat hippocampal interneuron. (B) Log-log plot of CV of AP width over diameter for a rat hippocampal interneuron. (C) Log-log plot of CV of AP height over diameter for a c-fibre axon. (D) Log-log plot of CV of AP width over diameter for a c-fibre axon. (E) Log-log plot of CV of AP height over diameter for a squid giant axon with Patlak channels. (F) Log-log plot of CV of AP width over diameter for a squid giant axon with Patlak channels. (G) Log-log plot of CV of AP height over diameter for a squid giant axon. (H) Log-log plot of CV of AP width over diameter for a squid giant axon.
