Anatomical studies have demonstrated that the lateral parabrachial nucleus (LPBN) is composed of at least seven separate subnuclei distinguished by cell morphology, spatial clustering, and afferent and efferent connectivity. We hypothesized that neurons within the subnuclear clusters of the LPBN might have distinct electrophysiological properties that correlate with cellular morphology. An in vitro slice preparation was used to intracellularly record the intrinsic properties of 64 neurons… CONTINUE READING
