Electrical signaling in the nervous system and heart

We are pleased to present a collection of articles on electrical signaling in the nervous system and heart, which have been curated from recent issues of JGP.

The passage of ions across cell membranes constitutes the ionic basis of electrical signaling in neuronal and cardiac tissue. The channels and transporters that carry these ions are manifold, and each are subject to intrinsic and extrinsic regulation, thus the orchestration of excitability is a complex process. The articles in this collection explore the diverse molecular mechanisms that underlie electrical signaling in the nervous system and heart. They also highlight the multidisciplinary approaches that are being used to dissect the structure-function relationships of the underlying transport proteins.

We hope you enjoy reading the articles, which are all freely available for a limited period.
