The study of ion channels represents one of the most active fields in neuroscience research in China. In the last 10 years, active research in various Chinese neuroscience institutions has sought to understand the mechanisms responsible for sensory processing, neural development and neurogenesis, neural plasticity, as well as pathogenesis. In addition, extensive studies have been directed to measure ion channel activity, structure-function relationships, as well as many other biophysical and biochemical properties. This review focuses on the progress achieved in the investigation of ion channels in neuronal survival during the past 10 years in China.
