Late development of intrinsic excitation in the rat neostriatum: an in vitro study.

Functional maturation of intrinsic circuitry in the neostriatum was studied by intracellular recording and intracellular staining with Lucifer yellow in slices obtained from rat pups at postnatal days (P)1-20 and from adult rats. The most striking observation was that intrastriatal stimulation elicited predominantly inhibitory responses in slices obtained… CONTINUE READING
