Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The study aims at exploring effects of microscopic channel fluctuations on macroscopic dynamics of excitable systems. Molecular biology techniques are used in order to construct a minimal excitable system that is built of cloned channels embedded in a small (approximately 1 micron 2) isolated patch of membrane. This simple synthetic "point" system exhibits dynamics in time scales that are several orders of magnitude longer then a single spike.
