Piriform cortex anterior interneuron deep layer GABA cellAxon terminalCholinergic ReceptorsAch action: pre- or postsynaptic?Cholinergic agonist carbachol selectively suppresses intrinsic fiber synaptic potentials but not afferent fiber synaptic potentials. A presynaptic mechanism of cholinergic suppression is suggested (Hasselmo ME and Bower JM, 19921 ). Cholinergic agonist carbachol caused a significant suppression of inhibitory postsynaptic potentials (IPSPs) in the pyramidal neurons that were induced by stimulation of layer Ib, with a weaker effect on IPSPs induced by stimulation of layer Ia (Patil MM and Hasselmo ME, 19992 ).
