“GABAergic inhibition in neocortical dendrites”

Michael Higley MD, PhD
Associate Professor of Neurobiology
Program in Cellular Neuroscience, Neurodegeneration, and Repair
Yale School of Medicine
Host: Dr. Aric Agmon (

When: Wednesday, October 5, 2016, @ 12:30 PM
Where: 301 BMRC

The vast majority of inhibitory GABAergic synapses in the cortex target pyramidal neuron dendrites, though their function is not well understood.  Using an array of approaches, we show that both phasic and tonic inhibition play key roles in the local regulation of dendritic calcium signaling.  Furthermore, we find that the molecular composition of dendritic inhibitory synapses makes them particularly sensitive to long-term modulation by glutamatergic signaling.  These interactions likely participate in the dynamic rebalancing of excitation and inhibition necessary for the proper function of cortical circuits.
