Interneurons of the cerebellum granule cell layer (GCL) form distinct populations. Golgi cells extend dendrites in the molecular layer (ML) and innervate granule cells. In contrast, Lugaro cells have dendrites confined to the GCL but innervate interneurons in the ML, and globular cells have both their dendrites and axons in the ML. The latter cells were(More)
Major aspects of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) can be reproduced in mice following a unilateral injection of kainic acid into the dorsal hippocampus. This treatment induces a non-convulsive status epilepticus and acute lesion of CA1, CA3c and hilar neurons, followed by a latent phase with ongoing ipsilateral neuronal degeneration. Spontaneous focal seizures(More)
GABA(B) receptors mediate slow inhibitory GABAergic neurotransmission. They are encoded by two distinct subunits, GABA(B1) (GBR1) and GABA(B2) (GBR2), with two major isoforms of GBR1, GBR1a and GBR1b, arising from differential promoter usage. Heterodimerization of GBR1 and GBR2 is essential for GABA(B) receptor function, as shown in recombinant expression(More)
Targeted deletion of the alpha1 subunit gene results in a profound loss of gamma-aminobutyric acid type A (GABA(A)) receptors in adult mouse brain but has only moderate behavioral consequences. Mutant mice exhibit several adaptations in GABA(A) receptor subunit expression, as measured by Western blotting. By using immunohistochemistry, we investigated here(More)
OBJECTIVE The disclosure of a diagnosis during pregnancy of a fetal malformation, which is incompatible with life, normally comes completely unexpectedly to the parents. Although a body of international literature has considered the topic, most of it comes from the United States and little has been generated from Europe. This study aims to illuminate the(More)
