Cell-type specific inhibitory control of basolateral amygdala microcircuitry and plasticity
The basolateral amygdala plays a vital role in associating sensory stimuli with salient valence information. Excitatory principal neurons undergo plastic changes to encode this association; however, local basolateral amygdala inhibitory interneurons gate principal neuron plasticity via feedforward inhibition. Despite literature implicating parvalbumin expressing interneurons in feedforward inhibition in cerebral cortex and hippocampus, prior anatomical experiments in basolateral amygdala implicate somatostatin expressing interneurons. The lateral entorhinal cortex, a brain region carrying olfactory ...
