The Effects of Activation of Kainate Receptors on Tonic and Phasic Gabaergic Inhibition in Interneurons in Field Ca1 of Guinea Pig Hippocampus Slices


Kainate receptor agonists are powerful convulsants and excitotoxins. Until recently, there have been several contradictory views as to the roles of these receptors in the CNS. We report here experiments showing that application of kainate led to concentration-dependent increases in evoked GABAergic inhibitory postsynaptic currents (phasic currents) in… (More)
