In the prefrontal cortex, parvalbumin-positive inhibitory neurons play a prominent role in the neural circuitry that subserves working memory, and alterations in these neurons contribute to the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Two morphologically distinct classes of parvalbumin neurons that target the perisomatic region of pyramidal neurons, chandelier cells (ChCs) and basket cells (BCs), are generally thought to have the same “fast-spiking” phenotype, which is characterized by a short action… Expand
Electrophysiological properties and projections of lateral hypothalamic parvalbumin positive neurons
TLDR
This work reveals that a cell type in the mouse LH identified by the expression of the calcium-binding protein parvalbumin is fast-spiking, releases the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate, and sends long range projections throughout the brain. Expand
Distinct Physiological Maturation of Parvalbumin-Positive Neuron Subtypes in Mouse Prefrontal Cortex
TLDR
The maturation of ChCs and BCs in different layers of the mouse PFC was assessed, and it was found that, from early postnatal age, ChCs or BCs differ in laminar location, and may contribute to the emergence of cognitive function differentially, and predominantly during prepubertal development. Expand
Different output properties of perisomatic region‐targeting interneurons in the basal amygdala
TLDR
The results suggest that, despite the similar uIPSC magnitudes originating from the three perisomatic inhibitory cell types, their distinct release properties together with the marked differences in their spiking characteristics may contribute to accomplish specific functions in amygdala network operation. Expand
Statistical models suggest presence of two distinct subpopulations of miniature EPSCs in fast-spiking interneurons of rat prefrontal cortex
TLDR
Estimates suggest the presence of at least two subpopulations of events with different modal amplitudes in fast-spiking interneurons and pyramidal neurons in FSIs and PNs, and the modal amplitude in this subpopulation is approximately two times larger than that in the low-amplitude subpopulation.

The Role of Parvalbumin-positive Interneurons in Auditory Steady-State Response Deficits in Schizophrenia
TLDR
Simulation of differential effects of decelerated synaptic dynamics, caused by subcellular alterations at two subtypes of PV+ interneurons: basket cells and chandelier cells, suggest that basket cells might serve as target for innovative therapeutic interventions aiming at reversing the oscillatory deficits.

The Role of Parvalbumin-positive Interneurons in Auditory Steady-State Response Deficits in Schizophrenia
TLDR
The differential effects of decelerated synaptic dynamics, caused by subcellular alterations at two subtypes of PV+ interneurons: basket cells and chandelier cells, are investigated and suggest basket cells might serve as target for innovative therapeutic interventions aiming at reversing the oscillatory deficits.

Fast-spiking Parvalbumin Interneurons are Frequently Myelinated in the Cerebral Cortex of Mice and Humans
TLDR
It is reported that a large fraction of myelin in mouse cerebral cortex ensheaths GABAergic interneurons, reaching up to 80% in hippocampal subregions, and it is confirmed that axons of fast-spiking PV interneuron axons are extensively myelinated in the human brain. Expand
Functional properties of GABA synaptic inputs onto GABA neurons in monkey prefrontal cortex.
TLDR
Results show that in the monkey DLPFC GABAAR-mediated synaptic inputs are prominent in layer 3 interneurons and may differentially regulate the activity of different interneuron subtypes. Expand
Generation of Sharp Wave-Ripple Events by Disinhibition
TLDR
A computational model is developed to study the emergence of sharp wave-ripple events (SWRs) and to explain the roles of different cell types in regulating them and advances the understanding of memory-related dynamics. Expand
Effects of Hypocretin/Orexin and Major Transmitters of Arousal on Fast Spiking Neurons in Mouse Cortical Layer 6B
TLDR
The results suggest that hcrt/orx, noradrenaline, acetylcholine, and neurotensin could contribute to high-frequency cortical activity through an action on L6b GABAergic FS cells. Expand

Functional properties of fast spiking interneurons and their synaptic connections with pyramidal cells in primate dorsolateral prefrontal cortex.
TLDR
The results suggest that FS neurons and their synaptic connections with pyramidal cells have homogeneous physiological properties, and different functional roles of basket and chandelier neurons in the DLPFC in vivo must arise from the distinct properties of the interneuronal axonal arborization or from a different functional pattern of excitatory and inhibitory connections with other components of the D LPFC neuronal network.
