SUMMARY
The regulation of intracellular calcium by the endo-
plasmic reticulum (ER) plays a critical role in neuronal
function. While the consequences associated with
depleting calcium from the ER have been studied in
multiple systems, it is not known whether the intrinsic
properties of a neuron change in response to such
perturbations. In this study, we demonstrate that
the depletion of calcium from the ER of hippocampal
CA1 pyramidal neurons induces a persistent, periso-
