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]1 ). These factors may contribute to greater susceptibility of endopiriforn nucleus to epileptogenesis. Reviewed in (Haberly LB, 19972 ). p397.
Piriform cortex anterior interneuron deep layer GABA cellSomaI A.Some diferences in the neurons in the deeper layers (v.s. those in the superficial layers) can be accounted for by differences in the IA channel in the cells (Banks MI et al, 1996 [rat]1 ).
