  • The hippocampal cornu ammonis 2 (CA2) region is unique in being the only CA region receiving inputs from the hypothalamic supramammillary nucleus, of importance in modulating hippocampal theta rhythm, and is seizure resistant in temporal lobe epilepsy. CA2 has, however, been little studied, possibly because of its small size and difficulty encountered in defining its borders. To investigate the properties of CA2 interneurons, intracellular recordings with biocytin filling were made in adult… CONTINUE READING
