Functional expression of the GABA(A) receptor α2 and α3 subunits at synapses between intercalated medial paracapsular neurons of mouse amygdala.

Abstract:

In the amygdala, GABAergic neurons in the intercalated medial paracapsular cluster (Imp) have been suggested to play a key role in fear learning and extinction. These neurons project to the central (CE) amygdaloid nucleus and to other areas within and outside the amygdala. In addition, they give rise to local collaterals that innervate other neurons in the Imp. Several drugs, including benzodiazepines (BZ), are allosteric modulators of GABA(A) receptors. BZ has both anxiolytic and sedative ac...
