Enhanced cortical and hippocampal neuronal excitability in mice deficient in the extracellular matrix glycoprotein tenascin-R.

Mice deficient in the extracellular matrix protein tenascin-R (TN-R-/- mice) show several indices of impaired perisomatic inhibition in hippocampal slices. The present study examined electroencephalograms (EEGs) and auditory-evoked potentials (AEPs) in freely moving TN-R-/- and wild-type control mice, focusing on the hippocampal CA1 field and cerebral… CONTINUE READING
