Inhibiting the Inhibitors Excitatory neurons in the hippocampus and entorhinal cortex are under control of local γ-aminobutyric acid–releasing (GABAergic) interneurons that are the major source of inhibition in the adult brain. In contrast to the wealth of knowledge regarding connectivity in the hippocampus, much less is known about the cross-talk between the hippocampus and other brain regions. Melzer et al. (p. 1506) investigated long-range GABAergic projections from the hippocampal formation… 
Gating of hippocampal activity, plasticity, and memory by entorhinal cortex long-range inhibition
TLDR
The behavioral impact of the LRIPs was determined by selectively silencing these inputs locally in CA1 during contextual fear conditioning and novel object recognition tasks, which caused mice to show an inappropriate fear response to a neutral context and a diminished ability to distinguish a novel object from a familiar object.
Role of Acetylcholine and GABAergic Inhibitory Transmission in Seizure Pattern Generation in Neural Networks Integrating the Neocortex, Hippocampus, Basal Ganglia, and Thalamus
TLDR
Analysis of the influence of acetylcholine and GABAergic inhibitory transmission on the functioning of parallel topically organized cortico-basal ganglia–thalamo-cortical neural loops and possible side effects of targeting muscarinic receptors in the treatment of various diseases including neurodegenerative disorders are discussed.
A Class of GABAergic Neurons in the Prefrontal Cortex Sends Long-Range Projections to the Nucleus Accumbens and Elicits Acute Avoidance Behavior
TLDR
It is confirmed that Dlxi12b-labeled projections from the mPFC to the nucleus accumbens (NAcc) release GABA and do not corelease glutamate, and optogenetic stimulation of these neurons induces avoidance behavior in a real-time place preference task, suggesting that these long-range projecting GABAergic neurons can transmit aversive signals.
Inhibitory control of hippocampal inhibitory neurons
TLDR
The mechanisms of synaptic inhibition of interneurons are reviewed and their role in the operation of hippocampal inhibitory circuits is discussed.
Identification and Characterization of GABAergic Projection Neurons from Ventral Hippocampus to Amygdala
TLDR
GABAergic projection neurons to the amygdala comprise a neurochemically heterogeneous group of cells from different interneuron populations, well situated to control network activity patterns in the amygdalo-hippocampal system.
Novel long-range inhibitory nNOS-expressing hippocampal cells
TLDR
It is demonstrated that LINCs can strongly influence hippocampal function and oscillations, including interregional coherence, and advances basic understanding of both hippocampal circuitry and neuronal diversity.
Interaction of Cortical and Amygdalar Synaptic Input Modulates the Window of Opportunity for Information Processing in the Rhinal Cortices
TLDR
The integration of synaptic activity evoked by simultaneous neocortical and amygdala electrical stimulation in PER-LEC deep layer principal neurons and parvalbumin (PV) interneurons in mouse brain slices was determined to create a more precise temporal window for coincidence detection.
Diversity and function of corticopetal and corticofugal GABAergic projection neurons
TLDR
Increasing evidence indicates that some cortical neurons that send long-range projections to distant brain regions are GABAergic, and Melzer and Monyer examine recent progress in the identification and function of these neurons.
Hippocampal Somatostatin Interneurons, Long-Term Synaptic Plasticity and Memory
TLDR
The long-term synaptic plasticity that takes place at the excitatory synapses of SOM interneurons, its singular induction and expression mechanisms, as well as the consequences of these changes on the hippocampal network, learning, and memory are described.

Neuronal Diversity in GABAergic Long-Range Projections from the Hippocampus
TLDR
It is concluded that direct GABAergic projections from the hippocampus to other cortical areas and the septum contribute to coordinating oscillatory timing across structures.
Long-Range GABAergic Connections Distributed throughout the Neocortex and their Possible Function
TLDR
To elucidate the role of the GABAergic projections neurons in the neocortex, it will be necessary to clarify the network constructed by nNOS-positive GABAergic projection neurons and their postsynaptic targets and to label and manipulate the neurons using genetic tools driven by a nNos promoter.
Muscarinic Control of Long-Range GABAergic Inhibition within the Rhinal Cortices
TLDR
It is suggested that long-range feedforward inhibition regulates perirhinal transfer of neocortical inputs to the entorhinal cortex, but that cholinergic inputs can presynaptically adjust the impact of this control mechanism as a function of environmental contingencies.
GABA-containing neurons in the septum control inhibitory interneurons in the hippocampus
TLDR
It is shown that GABA-containing afferents originating in the septum innervate most of the GABA- containing interneurons in the hippocampus, making many synaptic contacts with each of them.
Types and synaptic connections of hippocampal inhibitory neurons reciprocally connected with the medial septum
TLDR
The synaptic organization suggests that by sampling the activity of large populations of principal cells HS cells can reliably broadcast hippocampal activity level to the medial septum.
Postsynaptic targets of GABAergic hippocampal neurons in the medial septum-diagonal band of broca complex
TLDR
The GABAergic hippocamposeptal feedback controls the activity of septal (mostly GABAergic) projection neurons as a function of hippocampal synchrony and a novel circuit diagram, based on recent morphological-immunocytochemical findings, is shown.
What Does the Anatomical Organization of the Entorhinal Cortex Tell Us?
TLDR
Recent anatomical data are summarized supporting the notion that the traditional description of the entorhinal cortex as a layered input-output structure for the hippocampal formation does not give the deserved credit to what this structure might be contributing to the overall functions of cortico-hippocampal networks.
