Morphological and electrophysiological properties of principal neurons in the rat lateral amygdala in vitro

Faber, Elizabeth (Louise); Callister, R.J.; Sah, Pankaj


In this study, we characterize the electrophysiological and morphological properties of spiny principal neurons in the rat lateral amygdala using whole cell recordings in acute brain slices. These neurons exhibited a range of firing properties in response to prolonged current injection. Responses varied from cells that showed full spike frequency adaptation, spiking three to five times, to those that showed no adaptation. The differences in firing patterns were largely explained by the...[Show more]
