Whole-cell patch-clamp recordings of evoked action potentials were made in CA1 and CA3 pyramidal neurons of rat hippocampal slices. Previously we have demonstrated that activation of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) receptors induces a long-lasting enhancement of synaptic transmission mediated by ionotropic glutamate receptors in CA1 pyramidal neurons of rat hippocampal slices. Here, we further studied whether activation of GnRH receptors could modulate intrinsic neuronal excitability in… CONTINUE READING
