Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-containing medium spiny neurons constitute approximately 90% of the neuronal population in the neostriatum (caudate and putamen) and play an important role in motor programming. Cortical glutamatergic afferents provide the main excitatory drive for these neurons, whereas nigral dopaminergic neurons play a crucial role in regulating their activity. To further investigate the mechanisms underlying the dopaminergic modulation of medium spiny neuronal activity, we… CONTINUE READING
