Contribution of GABAA receptor-mediated inhibition to the determination of the velocity tuning of low pass-tuned neurons of the Superior Colliculus


The participation of intrinsic inhibitory networks in providing the velocity selectivity of neurons of the superior colliculus (SC) of the Syrian hamster was tested using iontophoretic application of bicuculline methiodide, a GABAA receptor competitive antagonist. The impulse activity of 22 low pass-tuned (LP) cells was recorded extracellularly. Following… (More)
