Synaptic circuitry in the rat lateral amygdala (AL) was studied in brain slices using electrophysiological recordings. Electrical stimulation of external and internal capsules evoked an EPSC followed by a sequence of GABA(A) and GABA(B) receptor-mediated IPSC in principal neurons. Paired stimulation of either afferents resulted in a significant reduction… CONTINUE READING
