  • a Kowalski et al. (2016), in vivo, threshold: used point of first derivative which exceeded 20 V s− 1.

  • b Yu et al. (2016), in vivo, threshold: used point of first derivative which exceeded three times the average first derivative.

  • c Wilent and Contreras (2005), in vivo, threshold: used peak of second derivative, values were averaged from the data for preferred direction and non-preferred direction.

  • d Mehaffey et al. (2008), in vitro, threshold: used point of first derivative which was eight times greater than SD.

  • e Berman and Maler (1998), in vitro.

  • f Li et al. (2013), in vitro, threshold: used point of first derivative which exceeded 10 V s− 1.
