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, 19922 ). 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, 19991 ).

Piriform cortex anterior interneuron deep layer GABA cellAxon terminalGabaonto pyramidal neuronInhibition of deep neurons (pyramidal and multipolar) by (presumed?) deep layer interneurons involves a fast Chloride and a slow potassium-mediated IPSP (Tseng GF and Haberly LB, 19893 ). Different GABAergic receptors are localized to specific layers, and may mediate feedforward and feedback inhibitions (Princivalle A et al, 20004 ). 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, 19991 ). Dendritic GABAA-mediated IPSPs act largely independent of somatic IPSPs and may regulate facilitation of MNDA-mediated respnses (Kanter ED et al, 19965 ).
