This chapter focused on the function of neuromodulators on the hippocampal system. And it was packed with information. Acetylcholine, dopamine, norepinephrine, metabotropic glutamate receptors, GABA-B receptors, serotonin all have different effects on excitatory transmission, inhibitory transmission, spike frequency adaptation, resting membrane potential, and plasticity. By the way, all of these modulators may have different effects on each event depending on (more…)
