Effects of GABA and baclofen on pyramidal cells in the developing rabbit hippocampus: an 'in vitro' study.

Using the in vitro hippocampal slice preparation, we have investigated the effects of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and its analogue beta-(p-chlorophenyl)-GABA (baclofen) on CA1 and CA3 pyramidal cells in the developing rabbit hippocampus. Somatic applications: both GABA and baclofen, when applied to CA1 pyramidal cells from immature tissue, led to cell… (More)
