Zheng F, Khanna S (2001) Selective destruction of medial septal cholinergic neurons attenuates pyramidal cell suppression, but not excitation in dorsal hippocampus field CA1 induced by subcutaneous injection of formalin. Neuroscience 103(4):985-998. doi: 10.1016/s0306-4522(01)00006-9
Summary: Previously, the authors have shown that an injection of formalin in the hindpaw of rats will excite a select population of CA1 pyramidal cells within a larger suppressed population. This response is accompanied by increased theta activation. The authors selectively eliminated medial septal cholinergic neurons using 192-Saporin (0.4 µl; Cat. #IT-01) to investigate the role of these neurons in response to a persistent noxious stimulus such as a formalin injection. The data indicate a CA1 network modulated by cholinergic neurons in the medial septal region may influence pyramidal cell theta and pyramidal cell suppression.
