Hippocampus CA1 interneuron oriens alveus GABA cellSomaI h.This current was studied using whole-cell and perforated patch-clamp in O/A interneurons (Maccaferri G and McBain CJ, 19961 ). It contributes to the spontaneous activity of these cells and to the tonic inhibition of CA1 pyramidal neurons in the hippocampus (Lupica CR et al, 20012 ).
Hippocampus CA3 interneuron oriens alveus GABA cellSomaI h.It contributes to the spontaneous activity of these cells and to the tonic inhibition of CA1 pyramidal neurons in the hippocampus (Lupica CR et al, 20012 ). This current was studied using whole-cell and perforated patch-clamp in O/A interneurons (Maccaferri G and McBain CJ, 19961 ).
