  • Perineuronal nets (PNs) are known as chondroitin sulphate-rich, lattice-like coatings of the extracellular matrix. In the cortex of mammalian species investigated so far, they were mainly found around GABAergic neurons, but to a lesser degree also around pyramidal cells. Previous investigations in the rat revealed similar distribution patterns of fast-firing neurons expressing both the Kv3.1b subunit of voltage-gated potassium channels and the calcium-binding protein parvalbumin. In the present… CONTINUE READING
