GABA-containing interneurons are a diverse population of cells whose primary mode of action in the mature nervous system is inhibition of postsynaptic target neurons. Using paired recordings from parvalbumin-positive interneurons in the basolateral amygdala, we show that, in a subpopulation of interneurons, single action potentials in one interneuron evoke in the postsynaptic interneuron a monosynaptic inhibitory synaptic current, followed by a disynaptic excitatory glutamatergic synaptic… CONTINUE READING
