It is believed that locus coeruleus (LC) influences the sensory information processing. However, its role in cortical surround inhibitory mechanism is not well established. In this experiment, using controlled mechanical displacement of whiskers; we investigated the effect of electrical stimulation of LC on response of layer V barrel cortical neurons in(More)
BACKGROUND Gap junctions (GJs) provide direct intercellular communications that are formed by hexameric protein subunits, called connexin (Cx). The role of Cxs in epileptogenesis has not received sufficient attention. Hippocampus with critical function in epileptogenesis has a wide network of GJs. We examined the protein expression levels of hippocampal(More)
Introduction: It is believed that Locus Coeruleus (LC) influences the sensory information processing. However, its role in cortical surround inhibitory mechanism is not understood. In this experiment, using controlled mechanical displacement of whiskers; we investigated the effect of phasic electrical stimulation of LC on response of layer V barrel cortical(More)
