In monkey prefrontal cortex (PFC), approximately 50% of the local axon terminals of pyramidal neurons form synapses with the dendritic shafts of GABA neurons. Subclasses of GABA neurons can be distinguished by the presence of different calcium-binding proteins. For example, in monkey PFC, parvalbumin (PV)-containing cells comprise approximately 25% of GABA… CONTINUE READING
