Method P.102 right column bottom paragraph:"Purkinje cells were labelled with HRP as described by Nitzan, Segev & Yarom (1990)."
Comments P.107 left column 2nd paragraph:"The morphological and physiological data for the three PCs [Purkinje Cells] shown in Fig. 3 are summarized in Table 2. From the data in Table 2 the following should be pointed out: (i) the spiny dendrites made up 81-85 % of the total dendritic length, (ii) most of the soma-dendritic membrane area was attributable to the spiny dendrites, (iii) the large number of dendritic terminals in each cell (over 400) reflected the complex architecture of the dendritic tree, and (iv) due to the larger tip of the HRP-filled electrode, RN [average input resistance], and τO [average system time constant] of the reconstructed cells were somewhat lower and LN [average cable length] was somewhat longer than the average values found when using smaller tip (potassium acetate) electrodes (compare to Table 1)."
