In the present study we investigate the inhibitory circuitries that regulate the neuronal activity in the lateral and basal nuclei, which are the main sensory input regions of the amygdala. Axon terminals immunoreactive for parvalbumin, a calcium-binding protein known to colocalize with GABA, were examined in these regions with electron microscopy, and their postsynaptic targets were identified and characterized. In the lateral nucleus, parvalbumin-immunoreactive (PV-ir) axons formed terminal… CONTINUE READING
