Electrophysiological characteristics of immunochemically identified rat oxytocin and vasopressin neurones in vitro.
1. Intracellular recordings were made from supraoptic neurones in vitro from hypothalamic explants prepared from adult male rats. Neurones were injected with biotinylated markers, and of thirty‐nineExpand

Posttraumatic epilepsy after controlled cortical impact injury in mice
Many patients develop temporal lobe epilepsy after trauma, but basic mechanisms underlying the development of chronic seizures after head injury remain poorly understood. Using the controlledExpand

Pilocarpine-induced status epilepticus results in mossy fiber sprouting and spontaneous seizures in C57BL/6 and CD-1 mice
Several rodent models are available to study the cellular mechanisms associated with the development of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE), but few have been successfully transferred to inbred mouseExpand

Pseudorabies virus expressing enhanced green fluorescent protein: A tool for in vitro electrophysiological analysis of transsynaptically labeled neurons in identified central nervous system circuits.
Physiological properties of central nervous system neurons infected with a pseudorabies virus were examined in vitro by using whole-cell patch-clamp techniques. A strain of pseudorabies virus (PRVExpand

Effects of TRPV1 activation on synaptic excitation in the dentate gyrus of a mouse model of temporal lobe epilepsy
Temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is a condition characterized by an imbalance between excitation and inhibition in the temporal lobe. Hallmarks of this change are axon sprouting and accompanying synapticExpand

Endomorphin-1 modulates intrinsic inhibition in the dorsal vagal complex.
Mu-opioid receptor (MOR) agonists profoundly influence digestive and other autonomic functions by modulating neurons in nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) and dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus (DMV).Expand

Vagally evoked synaptic currents in the immature rat nucleus tractus solitarii in an intact in vitro preparation
1 Whole‐cell voltage‐clamp recordings in an in vitro brainstem‐cranial nerve explant preparation were used to assess the local circuitry activated by vagal input to nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS)Expand

Neural circuit mechanisms of post–traumatic epilepsy
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) greatly increases the risk for a number of mental health problems and is one of the most common causes of medically intractable epilepsy in humans. Several models of TBIExpand

Excitatory and inhibitory local circuit input to the rat dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus originating from the nucleus tractus solitarius
The nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) and dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus nerve (DMV) constitute sensory and motor nuclei of the dorsal vagal complex, respectively. We used whole-cell patch-clampExpand

5-HT1B Receptor–Mediated Presynaptic Inhibition of Retinal Input to the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus
The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) receives glutamatergic afferents from the retina and serotonergic afferents from the midbrain, and serotonin (5-HT) can modify the response of the SCN circadianExpand
