Neurotransmitter transporters can affect neuronal excitability indirectly via modulation of neurotransmitter concentrations or directly via transporter currents. A physiological or pathophysiological role for transporter currents has not been described. We found that GABA transporter 1 (GAT-1) cation currents directly increased GABAergic neuronal(More)
Previous studies using c-Fos immunohistochemistry suggest that a sub-population of neurons in the midbrain periaqueductal gray region is activated during opioid withdrawal. The neurochemical identity of these cells is unknown but cellular physiological studies have implicated GABAergic neurons. The present study investigated whether GABAergic neurons are(More)
