Despite the importance of GABAergic input to cardiac vagal neurons the electrophysiological properties and possible origins of this innervation have not yet been studied. Individual cardiac vagal neurons were identified by a retrograde fluorescent tracer and were studied in an in vitro slice preparation using patch-clamp electrophysiology. Cardiac vagal neurons received spontaneous GABAergic inhibitory post-synaptic currents (IPSCs) that were blocked by the GABA(A) receptor antagonist… CONTINUE READING
