Whole-cell and intracellular recordings were made in coronal hypothalamic slices prepared from ovariectomized female guinea pigs. 62% of preoptic area (POA) neurons fired action potentials in a bursting manner, and exhibited a significantly greater afterhyperpolarization (AHP) than did non-bursting POA neurons. The majority (70%) of POA neurons (n=76… CONTINUE READING
