    Seminar: How the Functional Clustering of L-Type Calcium Channels Enhances Excitability in Our Hearts and Minds

    L-type calcium channels are ubiquitously expressed in excitable cells. They are engaged in a wide range of physiological processes including excitation-contraction coupling in muscle, hormone secretion, gene transcription, and repetitive neural discharge.

    As is the case for all voltage-gated channels, it is widely assumed that individual L-type calcium channels behave independently with respect to voltage-activation, open probability, and facilitation. In this talk, I will describe the results of super-resolution fluorescent imaging, optogenetic measurements, and electrophysiological measurements that refute this long-held view.
