The electrophysiological characteristics of unmodified, postnatal gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurons in the female mouse were studied using whole-cell recordings and single-cell RT-PCR methodology. The GnRH neurons of adult animals fired action potentials and exhibited distinguishable voltage-current relationships in response to hyperpolarizing and depolarizing current injections. On the basis of their patterns of inward rectification, rebound depolarization, and ability to fire… CONTINUE READING
