Excitatory amino acids in synaptic transmission in the Schaffer collateral‐commissural pathway of the rat hippocampus.
Results indicate that the synaptic receptor in the Schaffer collateral‐commissural pathway may be of the kainate or quisqualate type and although NMA receptors do not appear to be involved in normal synaptic transmission in this pathway they may play a role in synaptic plasticity.
The antagonism of amino acid‐induced excitations of rat hippocampal CA1 neurones in vitro.
DGG and APV did not affect ACh excitations and these selective antagonists should be of value in studying the involvement of the excitatory amino acids in synaptic transmission in the hippocampus, while PDA, GDEE, D‐ and L‐APB may be less useful in this regard.
Bursting response to current‐evoked depolarization in rat ca1 pyramidal neurons is correlated with lucifer yellow dye coupling but not with the presence of calbindin‐D28k
A characteristic pattern was observed which may represent the coupling of phenotypically identical neurons into distinct functional units within the CA1 pyramidal cell layer which is equivalent to the superficial layer described by Lorente de Nó (1934).

Patterns of Excitation of Thalamic Neurones by Amino-acids and by Acetylcholine
Although many neurones are influenced by the application of acetylcholine (ACh), the effect may be either an excitation or a depression, and many others are completely unaffected by this substance.

γ‐Aminobutyric acid and inhibition in the septal nuclei of the rat
1. The electrophoretic application of γ‐aminobutyrate (GABA) and glycine to septal neurones inhibited their discharge, but the currents required to cause equivalent degrees of inhibition were always…
