Some nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord fire many times when excited, others only fire once. Multivariate analysis was used to distinguish between types of neuron in the spinal cord of very young frog tadpoles and individual neurons were characterised using in situ patch-clamp recordings. We reveal the critical role of potassium currents in controlling firing properties and define a new group of behaviourally important sensory neurons.
