Serotonergic innervation of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) modulates neuronal activity and PFC functions. However, the cellular mechanism for serotonergic modulation of neuronal excitability remains unclear. We performed patch-clamp recording at the axon of layer-5 pyramidal neurons in rodent PFC slices. We found surprisingly that the activation of 5-HT1A(More)
Cortical fast-spiking (FS) neurons generate high-frequency action potentials (APs) without apparent frequency accommodation, thus providing fast and precise inhibition. However, the maximal firing frequency that they can reach, particularly in primate neocortex, remains unclear. Here, by recording in human, monkey, and mouse neocortical slices, we revealed(More)
