Similar neurons, opposite adaptations: psychostimulant experience differentially alters firing properties in accumbens core versus shell.


The principal components of neuronal excitability include synaptic and intrinsic membrane parameters. While recent studies indicate that cocaine exposure can induce widespread changes in synaptic function in the neural circuits for reward, intrinsic firing properties have received much less attention. Using whole-cell recording in ex vivo brain slices from… (More)
