Electrophysiological studies have suggested that the excitatory actions of opioids in the hippocampal formation are mediated by inhibition of interneurons containing GABA; however, an anatomical basis for this interaction has never been established. Thus, we sought to determine the relationship between leu-enkephalin (LE)-containing axon terminals and… CONTINUE READING
