Hippocampus CA1 pyramidal GLU cellSomaGabaCA1 Basket Cell terminals (T)The baskets formed by inhibitory basket cells have high concentrations of glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD), the enzyme that synthesizes GABA (Storm-Mathisen J, 19772 ). A 40-50% reduction in a small fraction of (peri-) somatic synapses with large or complex postsynaptic structure after kindling has been found. This functionally relevant reduction may be related to the loss of a specific class of interneurons, and could underlie the enhanced seizure susceptibility after kindling epileptogenesis (Wierenga CJ and Wadman WJ, 1999 [rat]1 ).
