Serotonergic fibers project to the hippocampus, a brain area previously shown to have distinctive changes in electroencephalograph (EEG) activity during entrance into and arousal from hibernation. The EEG activity is generated by pyramidal cells in both hibernating and nonhibernating species. Using the brain slice preparation, we characterized serotonergic(More)
1. The modulatory effect of serotonin on CA1 pyramidal cells in the hamster (Mesocricetus auratus) hippocampus was examined over a range of temperatures. 2. Following repetitive Schaffer collateral/commissural stimulation, changes in the amplitude of population spikes (the synchronous firing of CA1 pyramidal cells) were recorded in the hamster, a(More)
The effects of 7 day exposure to 2G fields on serotonergic modulation at two synapses on a hippocampal pathway were examined by recording dentate gyrus and CA1 pyramidal cell layer electrical activity. Serotonin decreased the amplitude of the population spike (synchronous action potentials in hundreds of neurons) in both the dentate gyrus and CA1 regions of(More)
