    ..Thus, neocortical chandelier cells, even from within a homogeneous population, appear to play a dual role in the circuit, helping to activate quiescent pyramidal neurons, while at the same time inhibiting active ones...

    Alan R Woodruff
    Department of Biological Sciences, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Columbia University New York, NY, USA
    Front Neurosci 4:201. 2010
    ..Here we review these recent developments and their implications. We focus in particular on whether chandelier cells may provide a depolarizing, excitatory effect on pyramidal neuron output, in addition to a powerful inhibition...
