  • Limiting glutamate transmission in a Vglut2-expressing subpopulation of the subthalamic nucleus is sufficient to cause hyperlocomotion

    05/15/2014
    Our results demonstrate that altering the contribuition of a limited population within the STN is sufficiente to achieve results similar to STN lesions and high-frequecy stimulation, but with fewer side effects.
  • Increased hippocampal excitability and impaired spatial memory function in mice lacking VGLUT2 selectively in neurons defined by tyrosine hydroxylase promoter activity

    05/15/2014
    These knockout mice showed impairment in spatial memory function. Electrophysiological analyses revealed a profound alteration of oscillatory activity in the CA3 region of the hippocampus.
