A network of fast-spiking cells in the neocortex connected by electrical synapses
Encoding of information in the cortex is thought to depend on synchronous firing of cortical neurons. Inhibitory neurons are known to be critical in the coordination of cortical activity, but howExpand

Molecular and Physiological Diversity of Cortical Nonpyramidal Cells
The physiological and molecular features of nonpyramidal cells were investigated in acute slices of sensory-motor cortex using whole-cell recordings combined with single-cell RT-PCR to detectExpand

Petilla terminology: nomenclature of features of GABAergic interneurons of the cerebral cortex
Neuroscience produces a vast amount of data from an enormous diversity of neurons. A neuronal classification system is essential to organize such data and the knowledge that is derived from them.Expand

Analysis of excitatory synaptic action in pyramidal cells using whole‐cell recording from rat hippocampal slices.
1. The pharmacological and biophysical properties of excitatory synapses in the CA1 region of the hippocampus were studied using patch electrodes and whole‐cell recording from thin slices. 2.Expand

Electrical and chemical synapses among parvalbumin fast-spiking GABAergic interneurons in adult mouse neocortex
Networks of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)ergic interneurons connected via electrical and chemical synapses are thought to play an important role in detecting and promoting synchronous activity in theExpand

Frequency-dependent synaptic depression and the balance of excitation and inhibition in the neocortex
The stability of cortical neuron activity in vivo suggests that the firing rates of both excitatory and inhibitory neurons are dynamically adjusted. Using dual recordings from excitatory pyramidalExpand

Electrical synapses between Gaba-Releasing interneurons
Although gap junctions were first demonstrated in the mammalian brain about 30 years ago, the distribution and role of electrical synapses have remained elusive. A series of recent reports hasExpand

Developmental regulation of NMDA receptor-mediated synaptic currents at a central synapse
THE central nervous system has extraordinary plasticity in early life. This is thought to involve N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors1 which, along with the non-NMDA receptors, mediate fastExpand

Mechanisms generating the time course of dual component excitatory synaptic currents recorded in hippocampal slices
We studied with the whole-cell recording techniques, the mechanisms underlying the time course of the slow N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA), and fast non-NMDA receptor-mediated excitatory postsynapticExpand

Subthreshold Mechanisms Underlying State-Dependent Modulation of Visual Responses
The processing of sensory information varies widely across behavioral states. However, little is known about how behavioral states modulate the intracellular activity of cortical neurons to effectExpand
