Neocortex L5/6 pyramidal GLU cellSomaGlutamate.Dual whole-cell recordings in acute slices showed that kainate receptors located on presynaptic interneuron terminals can be activated by glutamate released from the somatodendritic compartment of the postsynaptic pyramidal cells (Ali AB et al, 20011 ).
