Firing frequency modulation of substantia nigra reticulata neurons by 5-hydroxytryptamine.

Abstract

Unitary extracellular recordings were made in in vitro rat brain slices to explore the effects of serotoninergic analogues on the spontaneous activity of substantia nigra reticulata (SNr) neurons. Most SNr neurons exhibited regular spontaneous firing (23.4 +/- 8.9 Hz, mean +/- S.E.M., n = 30) similar to that found in vivo. The most reproducible effect of… (More)
