Input Resistance

Hi all

Can anybody tell me if input resistance only tells us the size of a cell if you are recording in WCR or does it tell us more?

Thanks everyone.

Input resistance (RN) can also be influenced by the profile of the channels types expressed in the cell type from which you are recording.

For instance in CA1 pyramidal neurons RN is influenced by the presence if Ih channels and thus has a voltage-dependence.
