Piriform cortex anterior pyramidal layer II GLU cellDistal apical dendriteGabaB.GABA is the transmitter released from large superficial horizontal cells and small globular-soma cells which mediate feed-forward inhibition of the pyramidal neurons when activated by axon terminals of mitral/tufted cells in the lateral olfactory tract or association fibers from other pyramidal neurons (Haberly LB, 19971 ). pp385,389,393-395,407).
Piriform cortex anterior pyramidal layer II GLU cellSomaI A.Steady-state inactivation curve is 10 mV more depolarized in SP cells in endopiriform nucleus. "Modelling analysis suggested that this difference is sufficient to explain the more depolarized membrane potential of deep cells, and results in a 2-fold decrease in latancy of the first spike evoked by depolarizing steps" (Banks MI et al, 1996 [rat]2 ). These factors may contribute to greater susceptibility of endopiriforn nucleus to epileptogenesis. Reviewed in (Haberly LB, 19971 ). p397.
Piriform cortex anterior pyramidal layer II GLU cellSomaI L high threshold.Reviewed in (Haberly LB, 19971 ). p396.
Piriform cortex anterior pyramidal layer II GLU cellSomaI T low threshold.Reviewed in (Haberly LB, 19971 ). p396.
Piriform cortex anterior pyramidal layer II GLU cellSomaI Na,p.May generate long delays contributing to temporal patterns (Ketchum and Haberly 1991); may play a role in epileptogenesis (Hoffman WH and Haberly LB, 1989 [rat]3 ). Reviewed in (Haberly LB, 19971 ). p396
Piriform cortex anterior pyramidal layer II GLU cellSomaI K,Ca.Substantial in most deep pyramidal and multipolar cells; generates hyperpolarizing potentials lasting several seconds; as I AHP contributes to rapid spike frequency adaptation; blocked by cholinergic agonists (Constanti A and Sim JA, 1987 [guinea-pig]4 ). see also Tseng and Haberly 1989b; reviewed in (Haberly LB, 19971 ). p397).
Piriform cortex anterior pyramidal layer II GLU cellSomaI M.Tonically active at rest; induces a sag in hyperpolarizing responses; blocked by ACh. (Constanti A and Galvan M, 1983 [guinea pig]5 ). see also Tseng and Haberly 1989b; reviewed in (Haberly LB, 19971 ). p395).
Piriform cortex anterior pyramidal layer II GLU cellSomaI h.(Constanti A and Galvan M, 1983 [guinea pig]6 ). This current "may be of limited significance within the normal physiological range of potential and extracellular environment" (Haberly LB, 19971 ). p396).
