The number and distribution of GABA- and parvalbumin (PV)-immunoreactive (IR) cells have been studied by immunocytochemistry in the cerebral cortex of newborn and adult lizards. The distribution of GABA-IR cells as well as that of PV-IR cells were similar in newborn and adult lizards, and PV-IR cells were GABA-IR in all cases. However, the absolute number of GABA- and PV-IR cells increased significantly during development. In addition, the rate of of GABA-IR cells also displaying PV… CONTINUE READING
