This paper presents an elegant study examining neuronal activation in multiple brain regions involved in learning and consolidation of an alternation task.
These images show the GABAA receptor δ subunit expressed on parvalbumin-positive interneurons in the basolateral amygdala.
Meet Dr. Zoltan Simandi currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Cremins Lab at the University of Pennsylvania focused on understanding the molecular underpinnings of neural cell fates in development and disease.
The authors show that voltage-gated sodium channels in vomeronasal sensory neurons undergo slow inactivation and this can contribute to the spike adaption caused by repeated stimuli.
