Spontaneous synaptic currents were recorded in supraoptic magnocellular neurosecretory cells using whole-cell patch-clamp techniques in the rat hypothalamic slice preparation. Numerous spontaneous excitatory and inhibitory postsynaptic currents (EPSCs and IPSCs) were observed in the 27 cells recorded. The rate of occurrence of the spontaneous currents and the relative proportion of EPSCs versus IPSCs varied significantly from cell to cell. Miniature EPSCs and IPSCs were clearly distinguished… CONTINUE READING
