Role of intercalated and NPY-expressing cells in neuronal circuit of the amygdala

Abstract:

Local inhibitory microcircuit of amygdala is an active component in processing emotional information. Despite prominent evidence of its importance, our understanding of GABAergic cell types, their connectivity and role in amygdala network is limited. The aim of this thesis is to understand connectivity and physiology of two specific components of GABAergic microcircuit of amygdala: so-called intercalated cells and neuropeptide Y (NPY) expressing interneurons.

Intercalated cells (ITC...
