  • Synchronization by Distal Dendrite-targeting Interneurons - phenomenon, concept and reality -

  • Developmental disruption of recurrent inhibitory feedback results in compensatory adaptation in the Renshaw cell - motor neuron circuit

    Here we used the selective expression of the nicotinic cholinergic receptor alpha 2 (Chrna2) in mice to genetically target the vesicular inhibitory amino acid transporter (VIAAT) in Renshaw cells.
  • Chrna2-Martinotti Cells Synchronize Layer 5 Type A Pyramidal Cells via Rebound Excitation

    Chrna2-Martinotti cells participate in defined cortical circuits and can synchronize pyramidal cells in a frequency-dependent manner.
  • Synchronization through nonreciprocal connections in a hybrid hippocampus microcircuit.

    Synchronization among neurons is thought to arise from the interplay between excitation and inhibition; however, the connectivity rules that contribute to synchronization are still unknown.
  • Hyperpolarization-activated ( I h ) currents in auditory brainstem neurons of normal and congenitally deaf mice

  • Topographic organization in the auditory brainstem of juvenile mice is disrupted in congenital deafness

  • Hyperpolarization-activated currents are differentially expressed in mice brainstem auditory nuclei

  • Altered sodium currents in auditory neurons of congenitally deaf mice

  • Sound stimulation modulates high-threshold K+ currents in mouse auditory brainstem neurons.

  • Modulation of dendritic synaptic processing in the lateral superior olive by hyperpolarization-activated currents

  • OLM interneurons differentially modulate CA3 and entorhinal inputs to hippocampal CA1 neurons.

    Our results suggest that acetylcholine acting through OLM cells can control the mnemonic processes executed by the hippocampus.
  • Sensorimotor function is modulated by the serotonin receptor 1d, a novel marker for gamma motor neurons
