NMDA inhibitors cause apoptosis of pyramidal neurons in mature piriform cortex: evidence for a nitric oxide-mediated effect involving inhibitory interneurons.


Pyramidal relay neurons in limbic cortex are vulnerable to denervation lesions, i.e. pyramidal neurons in layer IIalpha of piriform cortex undergo transsynaptic apoptosis after lesions that interrupt their inputs from the olfactory bulb. We have previously established the role of inhibitory interneurons in elaborating signals that lead to the apoptosis of… (More)
