The role of enkephalin and the opioid receptors in modulating GABA release within the rat globus pallidus (GP) was investigated using whole-cell patch recordings made from visually identified neurons. Two major GP neuronal subtypes were classified on the basis of intrinsic membrane properties, action potential characteristics, the presence of the anomalous inward rectifier (Ih), and anode break depolarizations. The mu opioid receptor agonist [D-Ala2-N-Me-Phe4-Glycol5]-enkephalin (DAMGO) (1… CONTINUE READING
