Firing patterns and synaptic potentials of identified giant aspiny interneurons in the rat neostriatum
Intracellular recordings were made in vivo from 9 giant aspiny neurons in the neostriatum of urethane-anesthetized rats. The cells were identified by intracellular staining with HRP or biocytin. TheExpand

Electrophysiological and immunocytochemical characterization of GABA and dopamine neurons in the substantia nigra of the rat
Neurons in the substantia nigra pars reticulata and pars compacta of the rat were studied using a combination of intracellular electrophysiological recording in in vitro and subsequentExpand

Up and Down States in Striatal Medium Spiny Neurons Simultaneously Recorded with Spontaneous Activity in Fast-Spiking Interneurons Studied in Cortex–Striatum–Substantia Nigra Organotypic Cultures
In vivo intracellular spontaneous activity in striatal medium spiny (MS) projection neurons is characterized by “up” and “down” states. How this type of activity relates to the neuronal activity ofExpand

The organization of divergent axonal projections from the midbrain raphe nuclei in the rat
The intranuclear organization of divergently projecting neurons of the midbrain raphe in the rat was studied by using double retrograde axonal tracing. Paired injections of the tracers N‐[acetyl‐3H]Expand

Intracellular study of rat globus pallidus neurons: membrane properties and responses to neostriatal, subthalamic and nigral stimulation
Physiological properties of globus pallidus (GP) neurons were studied intracellularly in anesthetized rats. More than 70% of the neurons exhibited continuous repetitive firing of 2-40 Hz, whileExpand

Afferent modulation of dopamine neuron firing patterns
In recent studies examining the modulation of dopamine (DA) cell firing patterns, particular emphasis has been placed on excitatory afferents from the prefrontal cortex and the subthalamic nucleus. AExpand

Dopamine receptor subtypes colocalize in rat striatonigral neurons.
Dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra provide one of the major neuromodulatory inputs to the neostriatum. Recent in situ hybridization experiments have suggested that postsynaptic dopamineExpand

Electrical membrane properties of rat substantia nigra compacta neurons in an in vitro slice preparation
The electrical membrane properties of rat substantia nigra pars compacta (SNC) neurons were studied in an in vitro slice preparation. Some of the recorded neurons were intracellularly labeled withExpand

Intracellular study of rat substantia nigra pars reticulata neurons in an in vitro slice preparation: electrical membrane properties and response characteristics to subthalamic stimulation
The electrical membrane properties of substantia nigra pars reticulata (SNR) neurons and their postsynaptic responses to stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STH) were studied in an in vitro sliceExpand
