GABAergic interneurons (INs) in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN) shape the information flow from retina to cortex, presumably by controlling the number of visually evoked spikes in thalamocortical (TC) cells, and refining their receptive field. The dLGN INs exhibit a rich variety of firing patterns. Depolarizing current injections to the soma may induce tonic firing, periodic bursting or an initial burst followed by tonic spiking, sometimes with prominent spike time adaptation. When… Expand
Reciprocal inhibition and slow calcium decay in perigeniculate interneurons explain changes of spontaneous firing of thalamic cells caused by cortical inactivation
TLDR
A modeling study in NEURON on several networks of point neurons with varied model parameters indicates that the thalamic reticular nucleus plays an essential role in the cortical influence over thalamo-cortical relay cells while theThalamic feed-forward interneurons are not essential in this process.

Biophysical Network Modelling of the dLGN Circuit: Different Effects of Triadic and Axonal Inhibition on Visual Responses of Relay Cells
TLDR
A recently developed biophysically detailed multicompartmental model for an IN is used and putative effects of these different inhibitory actions of INs, i.e., triadic inhibition and standard axonal inhibition, on the response properties of RCs are investigated. Expand
Two types of interneurons in the mouse lateral geniculate nucleus are characterized by different h-current density
TLDR
Ih in IN is modulated by neurotransmitters present in the thalamus and that the specific properties of Ih in these cells closely reflect their modulatory options. Expand
Temporal Selectivity in the LGN
The lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) is responsible for transmitting visual information from the optic nerve to the primary visual cortex. Located within the LGN is the triadic synapse, an unusualExpand
The Subcellular Distribution of T-Type Ca2+ Channels in Interneurons of the Lateral Geniculate Nucleus
TLDR
Inhibitory interneurons in the lateral geniculate nucleus provide both axonal and dendritic GABA output to thalamocortical relay cells (TCs) and it is found that the somatic response to somatic current injection is facilitated by a high T-channel density in the soma-region. Expand
Biophysical network modeling of the dLGN circuit: Effects of cortical feedback on spatial response properties of relay cells
TLDR
Simulation results support that a phase-reversed arrangement provides a more effective way for cortical feedback to provide the increased center-surround antagonism seen in experiments both for flashing spots and, even more prominently, for patch gratings. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that the thalamus is not a passive relay center and the intra-thalamic circuitry is of great importance to biological vision and could constitute a valid tool for refining information relay and compression in artificial neural networks (ANN), leading to deep learning models of higher performance.

A Novel Phase Portrait for Neuronal Excitability
TLDR
The revisited model considerably enlarges the modeling power of the original one and captures essential electrophysiological signatures that otherwise require non-physiological alteration or considerable complexification of the classical model. Expand
Acetylcholine‐dependent upregulation of TASK‐1 channels in thalamic interneurons by a smooth muscle‐like signalling pathway
TLDR
A novel pathway for the activation of TASk‐1 channels in CNS neurons that resembles cholinergic signalling and TASK‐1 current modulation during hypoxia in smooth muscle cells is identified. Expand
Electrodiffusive Model for Astrocytic and Neuronal Ion Concentration Dynamics
TLDR
A general electrodiffusive formalism for modeling of ion concentration dynamics in a one-dimensional geometry that ensures that the membrane potential and ion concentrations are in consistency, it ensures global particle/charge conservation and it accounts for diffusion and concentration dependent variations in resistivity.

Dependence of response properties on sparse connectivity in a spiking neuron model of the lateral geniculate nucleus.
TLDR
It is shown that interneuron inhibition and sparse connectivity between LGN cells could be key factors for explaining a number of observed classical and extraclassical response properties in LGN of monkey and cat. Expand
Contribution of morphology and membrane resistance to integration of fast synaptic signals in two thalamic cell types
TLDR
Simulations to explore the somatic influence of dendritic synapses showed that INs can transfer fast synaptic signals to soma as efficiently as TCs except when the focal conductance is large, and Rm was accurately estimated despite realistic levels of active conductance. Expand
Burst firing in identified rat geniculate interneurons
TLDR
The existence of robust bursts in this cell type suggests an additional role for interneurons in sculpting sensory responses by feedforward inhibition of thalamocortical cells, and suggests that these network oscillations might be even more complicated than previously believed. Expand
Acetylcholine inhibits identified interneurons in the cat lateral geniculate nucleus
TLDR
It is reported here that morphologically characterized interneurons in the cat LGNd possess distinctive electrophysiological properties in comparison with those of relay cells and are inhibited by ACh through a muscarinic receptor-mediated increase in potassium conductance. Expand
Active Dendritic Conductances Dynamically Regulate GABA Release from Thalamic Interneurons
TLDR
These studies suggest that active conductances make LGN interneurons flexible circuit-elements that can shift their spatial and temporal properties of GABA release in response to coincident activation of functionally related subsets of RGCs. Expand
Electrophysiological and pharmacological properties of interneurons in the cat dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus
TLDR
It is suggested that intralaminar interneurons may function in a relatively linear manner to transform retinal and cortical inputs into a local field of inhibition in the dorsal lateral geniculate and that the excitability of these neurons is largely controlled by retinal, cortical, GABAergic, and cholinergic (brainstem) afferents.
