Comparison of the electrophysiology and morphology of layers III and II neurons of the rat medial entorhinal cortex in vitro.

The basic membrane characteristics of neurons in layers II and III of the medial entorhinal cortex (MEA) were recorded using the intracellular current clamp technique in in vitro slices of the rat brain. Two types of cells were distinguished according to the presence of a time-dependent inward rectification (SAG current) with hyperpolarizing current pulses… (More)
