NeuronCompartmentPropertyConnectivityNotes
Hippocampus CA1 pyramidal GLU cellMiddle apical dendritemGluR---Extracelluar ACPD (an mGluR agonist) application to apical or basal dendrites of CA1 pyramidal neurons causes local increases in calcium concentration that propagate throughout the cell, as measured by simultaneous whole cell recording and confocal microscopy with calcium imaging (Jaffe DB and Brown TH, 1994 [rat]2 ). suggesting the presence of mGluRs. (Bashir ZI et al, 19931 ). provide evidence that activation of these receptors is necessary for LTP induction .
