Fast-spiking (FS) neurons are a class of inhibitory interneurons classically characterized as having short-duration action potentials (<0.5 ms at half height) and displaying little to no spike-frequency adaptation during short (<500 ms) depolarizing current pulses. As a consequence, the resulting injected current intensity versus firing frequency relationship is typically steep, and they can achieve firing frequencies of < or =1 kHz. Here we have investigated the properties of FS neurons… CONTINUE READING
