The mammalian visual cortex contains morphologically diverse populations of interneurons whose neurochemical properties are believed to be regulated by neurotrophic factors. This requires the expression of neurotrophin receptors. We have analysed whether brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), its receptor trkB and the NT-3 receptor trkC are expressed in interneurons of rat visual cortex in vivo, and in organotypic visual cortex cultures, paying particular attention to the subsets of… CONTINUE READING
