Using intracellular recordings in an isolated (in vitro) brain stem preparation, we examined the inhibitory postsynaptic responses of developing neurons in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) of the rat. As early as postnatal day (P) 1-2, 31% of all excitatory postsynaptic (EPSP) activity evoked by electrical stimulation of the optic tract was followed by inhibitory postsynaptic potentials (IPSPs). By P5, 98% of all retinally evoked EPSPs were followed by IPSP activity. During the first… CONTINUE READING
