Autaptic connections and synaptic depression constrain and promote gamma oscillations

Connelly, William

Description

Computational models of gamma oscillations have helped increase our understanding of the mechanisms that shape these 40–80 Hz cortical rhythms. Evidence suggests that interneurons known as basket cells are responsible for the generation of gamma oscillations. However, current models of gamma oscillations lack the dynamic short term synaptic plasticity seen at basket cell-basket cell synapses as well as the large autaptic synapses basket cells are known to express. Hence, I sought to extend the...[Show more]
