Neostriatum interneuron SOM/NOS interneuronAxon terminalSomatostatinstriatal connections to SPNs“Perhaps the principal function of these neurons is to release SOM, NOS, and/or NPY, all of which could exert slower neuromodulatory effects on their postsynaptic targets rather than fast synaptic effects. For example, SOM has been shown to exert a potent presynaptic inhibition on GABA release at SPN–SPN synapses.” Lopez-Huerta VG et al, 2008605 Reviewed in Tepper JM et al, 2010599
