Sharp wave-ripple complexes (SPW-Rs) in the intact rodent hippocampus are characterized by slow field potential transients superimposed by close to 200-Hz ripple oscillations. Similar events have been recorded in hippocampal slices where SPW-Rs occur spontaneously or can be induced by repeated application of high-frequency stimulation, a standard protocol(More)
The present study was designed to investigate the role of extracellular ATP and its receptors on neuronal network activity. Gamma oscillations (30-50 Hz) were induced in the CA3 region of acute rat hippocampal slices by either acetylcholine (ACh) or kainic acid (KA). ATP reduced the power of KA-induced gamma oscillations exclusively by activation of(More)
Parvalbumin-positive (PV) basket cells provide perisomatic inhibition in the cortex and hippocampus and control generation of memory-related network activity patterns, such as sharp wave ripples (SPW-R). Deterioration of this class of fast-spiking interneurons has been observed in neuropsychiatric disorders and evidence from animal models suggests their(More)
Channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2) is a light-gated ion channel that is successfully used in neurosciences to depolarize cells with blue light. In this regard control of membrane voltage with light opens new perspectives for the characterization of ion channels and the search for inhibitors or modulators. Here, we report a control of membrane potential with ChR2 and(More)
A large neoplasm that replaced 1 testis of a Long Evans Rat was noted at the final necropsy of a dietary 2-yr study. By light microscopy, the morphological features were consistent with a poorly differentiated seminoma. Ultrastructurally, the cells were polygonal, had a round nucleus, had straight cellular boundaries, and bore no resemblance to Sertoli(More)
The CA3 associative network plays a critical role in the generation of network activity patterns related to emotional state and fear memory. We investigated long-term changes in the corticosterone (CORT)-sensitive function of this network following fear conditioning and fear memory reactivation. In acute slice preparations from mice trained in either(More)
Previously stored information in the hippocampus is believed to be replayed during sharp wave-ripple activity thereby serving transfer of information from hippocampal areas CA3 and CA1 to the cortical mantle and memory consolidation. The subiculum represents the main hippocampal output and contains both regular spiking and burst firing neurons that may(More)
