Different mechanisms regulate IPSC kinetics in early postnatal and juvenile hippocampal granule cells.

1. Monosynaptic inhibitory postsynaptic currents (IPSCs) were recorded from early postnatal and juvenile dentate granule cells in rat brain slices at room temperature. The focally evoked currents were mediated by gamma-aminobutyric acid-A (GABAA) receptors. 2. IPSCs were characterized by a steep rising phase and a slower, monoexponential decay time course… CONTINUE READING
