Glutamate transporters limit cross talk between excitatory synapses by removing synaptically released glutamate. However, the role of glutamate transporters in limiting the action of synaptically released glutamate at inhibitory synapses remains unknown. Single and paired whole-cell patch-clamp recordings were obtained from Purkinje neurons and Bergmann… CONTINUE READING
