Olfactory bulb main interneuron granule MC GABA cellDistal equivalent dendriteGabaonto mitral cell to exert self inhibition or lateral inhibitionGAD-positive gemmules (spines) of granule cells were observed to form reciprocal dendrodentritic synaptic junctions with mitral cell dentrites which lacked reaction product.(Ribak CE et al, 19771 ). GABAergic inhibitory synapses onto mitral cells, through dendrodendritic spine synapse: possibly two types: self inhibition and lateral inhibition. (Rall W and Shepherd GM, 19684 ). (Isaacson JS and Strowbridge BW, 199810 ). Mitral-cell soma-dendrites act as a presynaptic terminal to the granule cell; the circuit is recurrent onto the injected cell; and the inhibitory transmitter is GABA (Jahr CE and Nicoll RA, 19826 ). and Shepherd GM ed. Synaptic Organization of the Brain, 1998. p182)GABA release onto mitral: spontaneous and gltamate-evoked. Moreover, activation of muscarinic receptors modulates GABAergic synaptic inputs onto mitral cell.(Castillo PE et al, 199911 ). Selective localization of GABA receptors at symmetric synapses ( and of gluR at asymmetric synapses.) (Sassoè-Pognetto M and Ottersen OP, 200012 ).
