Thalamus reticular nucleus GABA cellSomaGabaA.Kinetic, pharmacological, and structural properties of these receptors were studied using patch-clamp techniques and single-cell reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (Browne SH et al, 20012 ). Using intra- and extracellular recordings in ferret it has been shown that these neurons interact locally through the activation of GABA-A receptor-mediated inhibitory potentials (Shu Y and McCormick DA, 20021 ).
