Modulation of the input/output function of rat piriform cortex pyramidal cells.

1. In transverse brain slice preparations of rat piriform cortex, we characterized the repetitive firing properties of layer II pyramidal cells in control conditions (n = 78) and during perfusion of the cholinergic agonist carbachol (n = 26), with the ultimate goal of developing realistic computational simulations of the cholinergic modulation of the input… CONTINUE READING
