Povysheva N, Zaitsev A, Gonzalez Burgos G, Lewis D. Electrophysiological heterogeneity of fast-spiking interneurons: chandelier versus basket cells. PLoS ONE. 2013;8:e70553 pubmed publisher
..Such electrophysiological differences between ChCs and BCs likely contribute to their distinctive roles in cortical circuitry in each species. ..
Povysheva N, Johnson J. Effects of memantine on the excitation-inhibition balance in prefrontal cortex. Neurobiol Dis. 2016;96:75-83 pubmed publisher
..This study elucidates a novel mechanism of action of memantine associated with shifting of the E/I balance away from inhibition in neocortical circuitry, and provides important insights for AD drug development. ..
