The integrative properties of neurons depend strongly on the number, proportions and distribution of excitatory and inhibitory synaptic inputs they receive. [...] Key Result Strata radiatum and oriens dendrites are similar and differ from stratum lacunosum-moleculare dendrites. Proximal apical and basal strata radiatum and oriens dendrites are spine-free or sparsely spiny.Expand

TLDR
Four groups of GABAergic interneuron are described according to their expression of parvalbumin, cholecystokinin, axonal arborization density and long‐range projections, which contain at least 12 distinct cell types, which innervate mainly or exclusively the dendrites of CA1 pyramidal cells. Expand
Synaptic integration by different dendritic compartments of hippocampal CA1 and CA2 pyramidal neurons
TLDR
The available data reveal that the dendritic integration of these neurons is markedly different even though they are targeted by common inputs at similar loca- tions along their dendrites, which results in different routing of information flow and generates different corticohippocampal loops. Expand
The contribution of synaptic location to inhibitory gain control in pyramidal cells
TLDR
It is reported here that activation of GABAA receptor on the same dendritic compartment as excitatory inputs causes a rightwards shift in the function relating firing rate to excitatories conductance (the input–output function) and also a reduction in the maximal firing rate. Expand
Extrinsic and local glutamatergic inputs of the rat hippocampal CA1 area differentially innervate pyramidal cells and interneurons
TLDR
The data demonstrate that different glutamatergic pathways innervate CA1 GABAergic cells to different extents, and suggest that the numerically smaller CA1 local axonal inputs together with the alvear part of the entorhinal input preferentially act on GABAergic interneurons in contrast to the CA3, or theEntorHinal input in str. Expand
Convergence of excitatory and inhibitory inputs onto CCK‐containing basket cells in the CA1 area of the rat hippocampus
TLDR
Comparison of the two, neurochemically distinct basket cells reveals that CCK‐containing basket cells receive much less synaptic input than PV cells; however, the relative weight of inhibition is higher on CCK cells. Expand
Differences between the scaling of miniature IPSCs and EPSCs recorded in the dendrites of CA1 mouse pyramidal neurons
TLDR
Consistent with the idea that IPSCs may have a restricted local effect in the dendrites, the data show a lack of distance‐dependent scaling of miniature inhibitory synaptic events, in contrast to the scaling of excitatory events recorded at the same sites. Expand
Synaptic integration by different dendritic compartments of hippocampal CA1 and CA2 pyramidal neurons
TLDR
The available data reveal that the dendritic integration of two neighboring pyramidal neurons in the hippocampus is markedly different even though they are targeted by common inputs at similar locations along their dendrites, resulting in different routing of information flow and generates different corticohippocampal loops. Expand
The Dendrites of CA2 and CA1 Pyramidal Neurons Differentially Regulate Information Flow in the Cortico-Hippocampal Circuit
TLDR
This study addresses the puzzling finding that the direct entorhinal cortical inputs to hippocampus provide an unusually strong excitatory drive at the soma of CA2 pyramidal neurons, with EPSPs that are 5–6 times larger than those in CA1 pyramid neurons. Expand
Dendritic inhibition mediated by O-LM and bistratified interneurons in the hippocampus
TLDR
This review focuses on two subtypes of dendrite-innervating interneurons: the oriens-lacunosum moleculare (O-LM) interneuron and the bistratifiedInterneuron, which are well studied in vivo and in vitro and which affect dendritic excitability, network activity, and behavior. Expand
Distance-Dependent Differences in Synapse Number and AMPA Receptor Expression in Hippocampal CA1 Pyramidal Neurons
The ability of synapses throughout the dendritic tree to influence neuronal output is crucial for information processing in the brain. Synaptic potentials attenuate dramatically, however, as theyExpand

Total Number and Ratio of Excitatory and Inhibitory Synapses Converging onto Single Interneurons of Different Types in the CA1 Area of the Rat Hippocampus
TLDR
The least known aspect of the functional architecture of hippocampal microcircuits is the quantitative distribution of synaptic inputs of identified cell classes, and anatomical data are essential to understand the distinct behavior and role of these interneuron types during hippocampal activity patterns.

Precision and Variability in Postsynaptic Target Selection of Inhibitory Cells in the Hippocampal CA3 Region
TLDR
The results show that a restricted set of inhibitory cells, with somata within or close to CA3 stratum pyramldale, possess variable patterns of axonal arborization. Expand
A quantitative analysis of the dendritic organization of pyramidal cells in the rat hippocampus
TLDR
These studies identified distinctive dendritic branching patterns, in the stratum radiatum and stratum lacunosum moleculare, which clearly distinguished CA3 from CAl neurons. Expand
Differences between Somatic and Dendritic Inhibition in the Hippocampus
TLDR
Hippocampal synaptic inhibition is mediated by distinct groups of inhibitory cells that may differentially control dendritic electrogenesis and axonal output of hippocampal pyramidal cells. Expand
Synaptic target selectivity and input of GABAergic basket and bistratified interneurons in the CA1 area of the rat hippocampus
TLDR
To assess the position of interneurons in the hippocampal network, fast spiking cells were recorded intracellularly in vitro and filled with biocytin and showed that the interneuron were heterogeneous with regard to the frequency of synapses given to different parts of pyramidal cells. Expand

The number and variability of synaptic AMPA receptors in the rat hippocampus are determined using quantitative immunogold localization and it is estimated that the AMPA receptor content of C/A synapses on CA3 pyramidal spines ranges from <3 to 140. Expand

The unique connectivity of CR-IR cells may enable them to play a crucial role in the generation of synchronous, rhythmic hippocampal activity by controlling other interneurons terminating on different dendritic and somatic compartments of principal cells. Expand

Essential aspects of morphometric appearance and complex dendritic integration critical to CA1 pyramidal cell functioning are preserved across neurons defined from the two different hippocampal preparations used in this study. Expand
