Prefrontal Parvalbumin Neurons in Control of Attention.
Stockholm, Sweden. In Cell, Feb 2016
Using chronic recordings in mice, we found that fast-spiking parvalbumin (FS-PV) interneurons in medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) uniformly show increased and sustained firing during goal-driven attentional processing, correlating to the level of attention.
Regulation of Parvalbumin Basket cell plasticity in rule learning.
Basel, Switzerland. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, May 2015
Local inhibitory Parvalbumin (PV)-expressing Basket cell networks shift to one of two possible opposite configurations depending on whether behavioral learning involves acquisition of new information or consolidation of validated rules.
