Nitric oxide mediates GABA transmission [Neuroscience]

PNAS Early Edition Articles - Thu, 11/20/2014 - 14:04
Recurrent axon collaterals are a major means of communication between spiny projection neurons (SPNs) in the striatum and profoundly affect the function of the basal ganglia. However, little is known about the molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie this communication. We show that intrastriatal nitric oxide (NO) signaling elevates the...
