Neostriatum interneuron SOM/NOS GABA cellAxon terminalSomatostatinstriatal connections to SPNsPerhaps the principal function of these neurons is to release SOM, NOS, and/or NPY, all of which could exert slower neuromodulatory effects on their postsynaptic targets rather than fast synaptic effects. For example, SOM has been shown to exert a potent presynaptic inhibition on GABA release at SPN–SPN synapses.” (Lopez-Huerta VG et al, 20081 ). Reviewed in (Tepper JM et al, 20102 ).
