Comments "It is commonly assumed that, at the cellular level, conductances should be essentially deterministic because their size (~1–10 nS for a mammalian neuron) exceeds the conductance of single channels (1–100 pS) by two to four orders of magnitude. Surely one should be able to ignore random fluctuations in a population of tens of thousands of channels."
