New Publication from Marco Capogna's group
The article was published on November 7 in Neuron - Cell Press - “Dendritic Inhibition in Layer 1 Cortex Gates Associative Memory”. Learning-related plasticity is critical for emotional memory. The Neuron preview paper by Wen-Hsien Hou and Marco Capogna discusses novel dynamics mediated by a particular GABAergic neuron type (so-called neurogliaform cell) in layer 1 neocortex of mouse that is associated with aversive memory. Mechanisms underlying dendritic inhibition in layer 1 neocortex and their causal relationship with associative memory, as shown by Abs et al., Neuron, 100:684-699 2018, are critically presented and discussed.
