In neuroscience, Golgi cells are inhibitoryinterneurons found within the granular layer of the cerebellum. These cells synapse onto the soma of granule cells. Neuroscience is a field of study which deals with the structure, function, development, genetics, biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology and pathology of the nervous system. ... Inhibitory Postsynaptic Potential is commonly abbreviated to Currently there is more information available under the heading synapse. ... An interneuron is a neuron that communicates only to other neurons. ... Cerebellum (in purple) of the human brain For assistance with anatomical location terms, see Anatomical terms of location The cerebellum (literally little brain) is a brain region important for the integration of sensory perception with motor output. ... Cerebellum (in purple) of the human brain For assistance with anatomical location terms, see Anatomical terms of location The cerebellum (literally little brain) is a brain region important for the integration of sensory perception with motor output. ... Cells in culture, stained for keratin (red) and DNA (green) The cell is the structural and functional unit of all living organisms, sometimes called the building blocks of life. ... The soma is the bulbous end of a neuron, containing the nucleus. ... In neuroscience, granule cells are tiny cells found within the granular layer of the cerebellum. ...
Golgicells were recorded in the current-clamp mode of the whole-cell patch-clamp configuration with the KG internal solution (see Methods) and in the presence of 10 µM NBQX, 1 µM strychnine and 20 µM gabazine.
The Golgicells used for this study were obtained from animals between P13 and P25, that is at an age when parallel fibres are still forming new synapses on the distal part of the Golgicell dendrites (Altman and Bayer, 1997).
The Golgicell has generally been considered as mediating feedback inhibition of granule cells, but it is not known whether the granule cells inhibited by a given Golgicell are those which are responsible for the excitation of that Golgi.
