1. Intracellular and extracellular recordings of CA1 and CA3 neurones were performed in guinea‐pig hippocampal slices to examine synaptic activities dependent on metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs). 2. Long burst activities were elicited by 4‐aminopyridine in the presence of ionotropic glutamate receptor and GABAA receptor blockers (6‐cyano‐7‐nitroquinoxaline‐2,3‐dione and 3‐(RS‐2‐carboxypiperazin‐4‐yl)‐propyl‐1‐phosphonic acid, and picrotoxin). Long bursts were also elicited by alpha… Expand
Regulation of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor‐mediated synaptic responses by adenosine receptors in the rat hippocampus
1 Intracellular current clamp recordings were made from CA1 pyramidal neurones in rat hippocampal slices. Experiments were performed in the presence of ionotropic glutamate receptor antagonists andExpand
G‐protein‐mediated desensitization of metabotropic glutamatergic and muscarinic responses in CA3 cells in rat hippocampus.
TLDR
Results show that a cationic current induced by metabotropic agonists in hippocampal pyramidal cells undergoes apparent desensitization and suggests that this process occurs through a G‐protein‐mediated inhibition of the underlying membrane conductance. Expand
Modulation of afterpotentials and firing pattern in guinea pig CA3 neurones by group I metabotropic glutamate receptors
TLDR
The mGluR‐induced change in the firing pattern of hippocampal pyramidal cells is the result of multiple mechanisms, including suppression of both m and sAHPs and activation of an ADP, that act together to produce a specific excitatory effect, namely an increased likelihood that a single action potential will lead immediately to one or more following action potentials. Expand
Role of synaptic metabotropic glutamate receptors in epileptiform discharges in hippocampal slices.
TLDR
The results suggest that mGluR1 and mGlamR5 are activated synaptically during prolonged epileptiform discharges induced by bicuculline and 4-AP and indicate that the synaptic effects of the group I mGLURs on the duration of epilepsy discharges were mediated by a PLCbeta1-independent mechanism.

Persistent Receptor Activity Underlies Group I mGluR-Mediated Cellular Plasticity in CA3 Neuron
Plastic changes in cortical activities induced by group I metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) stimulation include epileptogenesis, expressed in vitro as the conversion of normal neuronal activityExpand
Regulation of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor‐mediated synaptic responses by GABAB receptors in the rat hippocampus
TLDR
Evidence is provided that synaptically released GABA activates GABAB receptors that inhibit mAChR‐mediated EPSPs in hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurones and the mechanism of inhibition may involve both pre− and postsynaptic elements. Expand
Group I Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors Elicit Epileptiform Discharges in the Hippocampus through PLCβ1 Signaling
TLDR
ImGluR(V) expression in CA3 hippocampal neuron is PLCβ1-dependent and plays a necessary role in the generation of rhythmic single cell bursts and synchronized epileptiform discharges in the CA3 region of the hippocampus. Expand
Is activation of metabotropic glutamate receptors responsible for acute hypoxic changes in hippocampal neurons?
In whole-cell recordings from CA1 neurons in slices from rats, the mGLUR agonist (+/-)-1-aminocyclopentane-trans-1,3-dicarboxylic acid (ACPD; 10 microM) had a depolarizing action on most cells,Expand
Cholinergic-Dependent Plateau Potential in Hippocampal CA1 Pyramidal Neurons
TLDR
The sADP represents activation of this conductance by residual [Ca2+]i, whereas the PP represents a novel regenerative event involving the interplay between high-voltage-activated Ca2+ channels and the Ca2-activated nonselective cation conductance. Expand
A Long-Lasting Calcium-Activated Nonselective Cationic Current Is Generated by Synaptic Stimulation or Exogenous Activation of Group I Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors in CA1 Pyramidal Neurons
TLDR
It is proposed that the synaptic ICAN, activated by a brief tetanic stimulation and leading to a long-lasting inward current, may be involved in neuronal plasticity and synchronized network-driven oscillations. Expand

Metabotropic glutamate receptors mediate a post‐tetanic excitation of guinea‐pig hippocampal inhibitory neurones.
TLDR
It is suggested that activation of metabotropic glutamate receptors during tetanic stimulation leads to a post‐tetanic excitation of inhibitory cells that mediate Cl(‐)‐dependent IPSPs. Expand

The results indicate that metabotropic glutamate receptor agonists suppress excitatory synaptic transmission in CA1 pyramidal cells by an action at a presynaptic site. Expand

Synchronization of inhibitory neurones in the guinea‐pig hippocampus in vitro.
TLDR
The findings indicate that excitatory interactions synchronizing the firing of GABAergic neurones can occur in the absence of fast EAA neurotransmission, and a subpopulation of neurons can become synchronized by a mechanism probably involving electrotonic coupling. Expand

TLDR
To the knowledge this is the first direct evidence of an mGluR-mediated EPSP in intact brain tissue and the S-enantiomer of alpha-methyl-4-carboxyphenylglycine stereoselectively antagonizes the slow synaptic potential recorded using the grease-gap method. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that synaptically released GLU can induce two types of postsynaptic responses: a fast excitation through activation of ionotropic receptors and a slower excitation associated with inhibition of K+ conductances throughactivation of metabotropic receptors. Expand
Carbachol-induced synchronized rhythmic bursts in CA3 neurons of guinea pig hippocampus in vitro.
TLDR
Dual intracellular recordings confirmed that rhythmic bursts occurred simultaneously in CA3 hippocampal pyramidal cells, indicating the synchronization of the event in the CA3 field. Expand

TLDR
Findings provide evidence that G‐proteins couple the activation of mGluRs and muscarinic receptors to a decrease in leak K+ conductance. Expand
Potassium conductances in hippocampal neurons blocked by excitatory amino-acid transmitters
TLDR
Electrophysio-logical consequences of the metabotropic response closely resemble those induced by activating muscarinic acetylcholine receptors in the same neurons and suggest that excitatory amino acids not only act as fast ionotropic transmitters but also as slow neuromodulatory transmitters.
