Reference Bjorefeldt A et al., Human cerebrospinal fluid increases the excitability of pyramidal neurons in the in vitro brain slice. J Physiol. 2015 Jan 1 593(1):231-43. doi: 10.1113/jphysiol.2014.284711. p.233 table 1PubMed ID25556798
Method p.232 right column 2nd paragraph:"Here [investigators] directly examined the influence of human CSF (hCSF) on the activity of pyramidal neurons in brain slices, using a matched aCSF as control. [They] show that switching from aCSF to hCSF powerfully boosts spontaneous firing, and induces in vivo-like properties, in pyramidal neurons."
Comments p.233 right column top paragraph:"The aCSF used during recordings contained 26 mM NaHCO3 and 1.2 mM NaH2PO4 in all experiments, whereas concentrations of Na+, K+, Cl-, Ca2+, Mg2+ and glucose varied with measured concentrations in different hCSF pools (see Table 1). All experiments were performed at room temperature." aCSF & hCSF=artificial cerebrospinal fluid & human cerebrospinal fluid. See notes beneath table
