Neostriatum interneuron ACh cellDistal equivalent dendriteAMPA.During periods of induced regular firing, intrastriatal stimuli were used to evoke pharmacologically isolated monosynaptic AMPA receptor-mediated EPSPs or GABAA receptor-mediated IPSPs. EPSPs evoked during the interspike interval (ISI) produced a phase-dependent decrease in the ISI, whereas IPSPs produced a phase-independent prolongation of the ISI (Bennett BD and Wilson CJ, 19982 ). At least 40% of choline acetyltransferase-immunopositive cholinergic interneurons were immunopositive for GluR1 or GluR4 (Bernard V et al, 19971 ).
