Cellular mechanisms and function of hippocampal gamma oscillations

Abstract:

Gamma oscillations (30 - 120 Hz) are a common feature of active cortical networks and changes in these rhythms can act as a useful marker of circuit dysfunction in psychiatric disorders and neurological disease. While their function remains debated, there has been converging evidence regarding their mechanism of generation. These rhythms depend upon the spiking of inhibitory interneurons, which synchronise the firing of excitatory pyramidal cells via fast synaptic inhibition. Specifi...
