Fast spiking, parvalbumin (PV) expressing hippocampal interneurons are classified into basket, axo-axonic (chandelier), and bistratified cells. These cell classes play key roles in regulating local circuit operations and rhythmogenesis by releasing GABA in precise temporal patterns onto distinct domains of principal cells. In this study, we show that each(More)
The mechanisms underlying the effects of cannabinoids on cognitive processes are not understood. Here we show that cannabinoid type-1 receptors (CB1Rs) control hippocampal synaptic plasticity and spatial memory through the hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channels that underlie the h-current (Ih), a key regulator of dendritic(More)
Temporal lobe epilepsy is often medically refractory and new targets for intervention are needed. We used a mouse model of temporal lobe epilepsy, on-line seizure detection, and responsive optogenetic intervention to investigate the potential for cerebellar control of spontaneous temporal lobe seizures. Cerebellar targeted intervention inhibited spontaneous(More)
Our understanding of the neuronal mechanisms behind epilepsy dynamics has recently advanced due to the application of novel technologies, monitoring hundreds of neurons with single cell resolution. These developments have provided new theories on the relationship between physiological and pathological states, as well as common motifs for the propagation of(More)
We examined the influence of litter quality and litter depth on soil microclimate in the detrital manipulation plots in the Síkfőkút Detrital Input and Removal Treatments (DIRT) experiment in northeastern Hungary. We measured the soil temperatures from 06.01.2001 to 06.16.2008 and air temperature from 06.17.2004 to 06.16.2008. DIRT manipulations include two(More)

Local interneurons control principal cells within individual brain areas, but anecdotal observations indicate that interneuronal axons sometimes extend beyond strict anatomical boundaries. Here, we use the case of the dentate gyrus (DG) to show that boundary-crossing interneurons with cell bodies in CA3 and CA1 constitute a numerically significant and(More)
