There is growing evidence that prenatal protein malnutrition alters the development of the hippocampal formation in rats (Morgane et al., 1993; Galler et al., 1996; Almeida et al., 1996, for reviews). Little is known, however, of the possible functional consequences of prenatal malnutrition on the physiology of principal cells in the hippocampus. We have addressed this issue by comparing the electrophysiological properties of hippocampal neurons (dentate granule cells and CA1 pyramidal cells… CONTINUE READING
