New paper up at Neuron!

Our latest work describing long-term plasticity at GABAergic synapses is now out at Neuron.  This great work from former postdoc Chiayu Chiu shows that activation of NMDA-type glutamate receptors produces a long-term potentiation of inhibitory inputs arising from SOM-INs.  Surprisingly, synapses from PV- and VIP-INs do not exhibit this plasticity.  Our results suggest this difference is due to a diversity of postsynaptic molecular composition across somatic and dendritic GABAergic inputs.  Thanks also to great collaborative effort from my colleagues Susumu Tomita at Yale and Steve Tavalin at U. Tennessee!
