The involvement of dopamine in the process of learning, at the cellular and behavioral levels, has been studied extensively. Evidently, dopamine is released from midbrain nuclei neurons on exposure to salient unpredicted stimuli and binds to neurons of cortical and subcortical structures, where its neuromodulatory effects are exerted. The neuromodulatory effects of dopamine at the synaptic and cellular levels are very rich, but it is difficult to extrapolate from these elementary levels what… Expand
Spatio-temporal cholinergic modulation in cultured networks of rat cortical neurons: Spontaneous activity
TLDR
The results indicate that cholinergic neurotransmitters have a strong and reliable desynchronizing action on cortical neural activity. Expand
Functional Connectivity of Neurons in the Frontal Cortex and Hippocampus in Conditions of Cholinergic Deficit with Different Behavioral Strategies
Experiments on cats employing two different strategies of operant behavior (impulsive and self-controlled) revealed narrow and wide peaks on cross-correlation histograms of spike trains recorded fromExpand
Exploring the Contribution of Thalamic and Hippocampal Input on Cortical Dynamics in a Brain-on-a-Chip Model
The huge connectivity of the brain and the cellular diversity, which characterize the neuronal populations in the different anatomical districts, are considered two of the main sources originatingExpand
Inverted-U Profile of Dopamine–NMDA-Mediated Spontaneous Avalanche Recurrence in Superficial Layers of Rat Prefrontal Cortex
TLDR
It is suggested that the dopamine–NMDA-dependent spontaneous recurrence of specific avalanches in superficial cortical layers might facilitate integrative and associative aspects of PFC functions. Expand
Network Dynamics and Synchronous Activity in cultured Cortical Neurons
TLDR
The results show that burst firing and global synchronization can be enhanced or reduced; and that the degree of synchronous activity in the network can be characterized by simple parameters such as cross-correlation on burst events. Expand
Inhibition increases response variability and reduces stimulus discrimination in random networks of cortical neurons
TLDR
This work quantified the effects of inhibition on response variability and stimulus discrimination at the population and single unit levels and finds that blocking inhibition quenches variability of responses evoked by repeated stimuli and enhances discrimination between stimuli that invade the network from different spatial loci. Expand
Dynamics and Effective Topology Underlying Synchronization in Networks of Cortical Neurons
TLDR
The activity of early-to-fire neurons reliably forecasts an upcoming network spike and provides means for expedited propagation between assemblies, and theory predicts that scale-free topology allows for synchronization time that does not increase markedly with network size; this prediction is supported. Expand
Cliques in Neural Ensembles as Perception Carriers
TLDR
Analysis of this functional system provides a new insight into the structure of the spatio-temporal firing patterns, coined "Cliques", that are in a way the neurophysiological carriers of higher-level task-dependent functions and perceptual elements. Expand
Order-Based Representation in Random Networks of Cortical Neurons
TLDR
This study shows that in spontaneously developing large-scale random networks of cortical neurons in vitro the order in which neurons are recruited following each stimulus is a naturally emerging representation primitive that is invariant to significant temporal changes in spike times. Expand
Latency-related development of functional connections in cultured cortical networks.
TLDR
The data suggest that functional connections contain information about synaptic connections, that conditional firing probability analysis is sensitive enough to detect it and that a substantial fraction of all functional connections is based on direct pathways. Expand

Presynaptic regulation of recurrent excitation by D1 receptors in prefrontal circuits.
TLDR
Approximate attenuation of local horizontal excitatory synaptic transmission in layer V pyramidal neurons by dopamine is through D1 actions at a presynaptic site, and dopamine reduces the efficacy of unitary exciteatory neurotransmission inlayer V pyramsidal cells by decreasing its reliability. Expand
Dopamine increases excitability of pyramidal neurons in primate prefrontal cortex.
TLDR
It is shown, for the first time, that DA modulates the activity of layer 3 pyramidal neurons in area 46 of monkey dorsolateral PFC in vitro, and the results suggest that, by means of these effects alone, DA modulation would generally enhance the response of PFC pyramsidal neurons to excitatory currents that reach the action potential initiation site. Expand
Dopamine modulation of membrane and synaptic properties of interneurons in rat cerebral cortex.
TLDR
The results suggest that DA can directly excite cortical interneurons, but there is no detectable DA gate to regulate spontaneous GABA and glutamate release or the properties of postsynapticGAB and glutamate receptors in neocortical neurons. Expand
Bidirectional Dopamine Modulation of GABAergic Inhibition in Prefrontal Cortical Pyramidal Neurons
TLDR
D1 and D2 receptors regulated GABAergic activity in opposite manners and through different mechanisms in prefrontal cortex (PFC) pyramidal cells, which could have important implications for the computational properties of active PFC networks. Expand
Characterization of dopamine‐induced depolarization of prefrontal cortical neurons
TLDR
It remains possible that there exists a new type of DA receptors in the PFC not sensitive to classical DA agonists and antagonists, particularly given the fact that DA applied in the same manner depolarized only PFC neurons but not those in the striatum or the substantia nigra. Expand
Dopamine modulation of synaptic transmission in rat prefrontal cortex: an in vitro electrophysiological study
TLDR
It is indicated that DA decreases both glutamatergic and gabaergic synaptic transmission in neurons located in layer V of rat prefrontal cortex, and the results suggest that D1 dopamine receptor is involved in the decrement of glutamatorgic transmission. Expand
Dopamine Enhances EPSCs in Layer II–III Pyramidal Neurons in Rat Prefrontal Cortex
TLDR
Results indicate that EPSC enhancement may be attributable to a postsynaptic signaling cascade involving Ca2+, PKA, and CaMKII, and dopamine enhancement of EPSCs was not observed in any of the cells tested. Expand
Dopamine Decreases the Excitability of Layer V Pyramidal Cells in the Rat Prefrontal Cortex
TLDR
It is demonstrated that DA, over a range of concentrations, has an inhibitory effect on layer V pyramidal neurons in the rat mPFC, possibly through D2 receptor activation. Expand
Dopamine inhibition of evoked IPSCs in rat prefrontal cortex.
TLDR
The results suggest that DA can decrease IPSCs in layer II-III PFC neocortical pyramidal cells by activating presynaptic D1-like receptors. Expand

TLDR
D1 receptor stimulation on layers V- VI pyramidal PFC neurons is suggested to restrict the effects of inputs to the apical dendrites of these neurons by attenuating the dendritic HTS- mediated amplification of such inputs. Expand
