Information about the hc-7 data set.


The data set contains raw data and values of inhibitory transmission parameters (IPSC rise, decay, amplitude and short-term plasticity) between interneurons and their interneuron/pyramidal cell targets in response to for different physiologically relevant firing patterns. We measured the parameters of transmission from pairs of CA3 area PV positive basket and axo-axonic, as well as CCK positive basket and dendrite targeting neurons in mouse in vitro hippocampal slices (postnatal 19-25 days).

The data were used to produce results described in the following paper:

Zsolt Kohus, Szabolcs Káli, Laura Rovira-Esteban, Dániel Schlingloff, Orsolya Papp, Tamás F Freund, Norbert Hájos, Attila I Gulyás. Properties and dynamics of inhibitory synaptic communication within the CA3 microcircuits of pyramidal cells and interneurons expressing PV or CCK. J Physiol. 2016 Apr 1. doi: 10.1113/JP272231.
