Neurokinin-receptor-mediated depolarization of cortical neurons elicits an increase in glutamate release at excitatory synapses.

Abstract

Using whole-cell patch-clamp recordings of spontaneous synaptic activity, we have previously shown that activation of neurokinin-1 (NK1) but not NK3 receptors leads to increased GABA release onto principal cells in the rat entorhinal cortex. In the present study, we examine the effect of activation of these receptors on spontaneous excitatory synaptic… (More)
