Visualization of local afferent inputs to magnocellular oxytocin neurons in vitro.

Abstract

We recently showed that oxytocin (OT) neurons in organotypic slice cultures obtained from postnatal rat hypothalamus display complex patterns of electrical activity, similar to those of adult magnocellular OT neurons in vivo. Here we used such cultures to investigate the identity and, in particular, the origin of afferent inputs responsible for this… (More)
