Neuronal Receptors (s) having Whole cell and perforated patch recordings in slices showed bicuculline-dependent and ?independent GABA currents from juvenile rats, suggesting two types of GABAergic inputs. The bicuculline-independent component was present only at the earliest stages of maturation, had a later peak, slower time course of decay, and marked outward rectification. A trophic or signaling role rather than primarily inhibitory was suggested for this current as Publication facts
