The inhibitory response evoked in presumably serotonergic dorsal raphe neurons by stimulation of the lateral habenular nucleus was examined in the rat using intracellular recording techniques. Electrical stimulation of the lateral habenula produces a long-lasting hyperpolarization in dorsal raphe neurons having the slow spontaneous firing pattern (0.5-1.5 spikes/sec) and broad action potential (greater than 1 msec) indicative of serotonergic neurons. The hyperpolarizing response is reversed by… CONTINUE READING
