REPRESENTATION OF THE BODY IN THE LATERAL STRIATUM OF THE FREELY MOVING RAT: RESPONSIVENESS OF FAST SPIKING INTERNEURONS TO STIMULATION OF INDIVIDUAL BODY PARTS By

Abstract

Numerous studies have shown that certain types of striatal interneurons might play a crucial role in selection and regulation of striatal output. Among these, striatal Fast-Spiking Interneurons (FSIs) are parvalbumin positive, GABAergic interneurons that constitute less than 1% of the total striatal population. FSIs display a strong medial<lateral… (More)
