Whether neocortical γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) cells are composed of a limited number of distinct classes of neuron, or whether they are continuously differentiated with much higher diversity, remains a contentious issue for the field. Most GABA cells of rat frontal cortex have at least 1 of 6 chemical markers (parvalbumin, calretinin, alpha-actinin-2, somatostatin, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide, and cholecystokinin), with each chemical class comprising several distinct neuronal subtypes… CONTINUE READING
