Some pharmacological differences between hippocampal excitatory and inhibitory synapses in transmitter release: an in vitro study.

The effects of adenosine, carbachol, and baclofen on synaptic transmission between neurons in cultured rat hippocampal explants were studied using the tight-seal whole cell clamp technique. In the culture, stimulations of neurites cause postsynaptic currents (PSCs) in nearby neurons under voltage-clamp condition. In the presence of 20 microM bicuculline… CONTINUE READING
