  • Communication between individual GABAergic cells and their target neurons is mediated by synapses and, in the case of neurogliaform cells (NGFCs), by unitary volume transmission. Effects of non-synaptic volume transmission might involve non-neuronal targets, and astrocytes not receiving GABAergic synapses but expressing GABA receptors are suitable for evaluating this hypothesis. Testing several cortical interneuron types in slices of the rat cerebral cortex, we show selective unitary… CONTINUE READING
