In vitro studies of pyramidal neurons have reported long-lasting small-amplitude depolarizations. In this work, we show that these depolarizations may originate from distal apical tuft dendrites. We also show that the underlying mechanism (which involves TRP and VGCC currents) is intrinsically stable to weak excitatory and inhibitory input, thereby providing the cell with a mechanism for subthreshold dendritic bistability. We further discuss the impact on synaptic integration.
