Dentate granule cells are situated to regulate the flow of information into the hippocampus, a structure required for normal learning and memory. Correspondingly, impaired granule cell function leads to memory deficits, and, interestingly, altered granule cell connectivity may contribute to the hyperexcitability of limbic epilepsy. which the dentate gyrus innervates hippocampal area CA3, have yielded little evidence of an extralamellar or even overtly topographic organization (Claiborne et al., ).

Simulation and Analysis of Synaptic Transmission in Hippocampal Dentate Gyrus Granule CellsDepartment of Physiology and Institute of Biomedical Engineering, University of Toronto Using measurements from actual cells, a stochastic algorithm was developed and used to generate random rat dentate gyrus (DG) granule cell shapes which as a family look like.

In this Review, Thomas Hainmueller and Marlene Bartos examine the cells and circuits of the dentate gyrus, and discuss the evidence indicating that this brain region has multiple mnemonic by: 1. Dentate gyrus granule cells receive excitatory neuron input from the entorhinal cortex and send excitatory output to the hippocampal CA3 region via the mossy fibers.

It is unclear how running modifies the circuitry of new dentate gyrus neurons to support their role in memory by:   Grid cells in the rat medial entorhinal cortex fire (periodically) over the entire environment.

Using a cross-disciplinary approach, we demonstrate that dopaminergic input in the dentate gyrus, a hippocampal subregion critical for the formation of high-resolution memories, impairs subsequent learning by suppressing cortical inputs and ensemble neuronal activity in this by: Abstract.

Structural rearrangement of the dentate gyrus has been described as the underlying cause of many types of epilepsies, particularly temporal lobe epilepsy. It is said to occur when aberrant connections are established in the damaged hippocampus, as described in human epilepsy and experimental models.

The hippocampal dentate gyrus is an intriguing structure, being one of the few mammalian brain regions capable of neurogenesis in adulthood and exhibiting synaptic plasticity that is influenced by relative neuronal age (19, 20).

Learning-related stimulation paradigms implemented in the dentate gyrus have also revealed a low. Granule cells in the dentate gyrus are only sparsely active in vivo and survive hippocampal sclerosis (HS) during temporal lobe epilepsy better than neighboring cells.

This phenomenon could be related to intrinsic properties specifically adapted to counteract by:   The cortico-hippocampal circuit is implicated in the formation, storage, and retrieval of spatial and episodic memories (Lisman, ).The dentate gyrus (DG), the first stage in the hippocampal circuitry, receives abundant excitatory projections from the entorhinal cortex via the perforant-path (PP) by: 5.

After more than 30 years of study, the dynamics of synaptic plasticity in neurons still remain somewhat a mystery. By conducting a series of simulations on a simulated version of the rat dentate gyrus granule cell using the Izhikevich spiking neuron model, we compare and contrast several potential synaptic plasticity rules'.

Mossy fiber sprouting (MFS) has been observed in several animal models of TLE. The recurrent synaptic transmission between granule cells is one of the supposed inductors of a recurrent excitation between these cells and therefore is responsible for the generation of spontaneous seizures with probable origin in the hippocampus [8, 9].Cited by: 3.

The name granule cell has been used for a number of different types of neuron whose only common feature is that they all have very small cell bodies. Granule cells are found within the granular layer of the cerebellum, the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus, the superficial layer of the dorsal cochlear nucleus, the olfactory bulb, and the cerebral cortex.

Cerebellar granule cells. Pernía-Andrade and Jonas characterize the synaptic mechanisms underlying network oscillations and temporal coding in the dorsal hippocampus in awake rats. Theta-gamma-modulated synaptic currents may provide a framework for sparse temporal coding of information in the dentate by: The trisynaptic circuit consists of excitatory cells (mostly stellate cells) in layer II of the entorhinal cortex, projecting to the granule cell layer of the dentate gyrus via the perforant path.

The dentate gyrus receives no direct inputs from other cortical : Posterior cerebral, Anterior choroidal. The dendritic spines of dentate granule cells are the sites where the predominant stream of information from cortex arrives in the hippocampus. The findings presented here provide evidence that synaptic plasticity can rapidly influence the information storage capacity of synapses in dentate gyrus by: After more than 30 years of study, the dynamics of synaptic plasticity in neurons still remain somewhat a mystery.

By conducting a series of simulations on a simulated version of the rat dentate gyrus granule cell usingthe Izhikevich spiking neuron model, we compare and contrast several potential synaptic plasticity rules' applicability to the same experiment.

The input region of the hippocampus, the dentate gyrus, plays a critical role in these processes.

Dentate gyrus granule cells receive excitatory neuron input from the entorhinal cortex and send excitatory output to the hippocampal CA3 region via the mossy fibers. Neurogenesis, the creation of new brain cells called neurons, occurs primarily before birth. However, a region of the brain called the dentate gyrus, which is involved in memory, continues to produce new neurons throughout life.

Recent studies suggest that adding neurons to the dentate gyrus helps the brain to distinguish between similar sights, sounds Cited by:   The dentate gyrus is part of the hippocampal memory system and special in that it generates new neurons throughout life.

Here we discuss the question of what the functional role of these new neurons might be. Our hypothesis is that they help the dentate gyrus to avoid the problem of catastrophic interference when adapting to new by:   Dentate granule cells receive predominant input from the medial septum, entorhinal cortex, and hilus [for review, see Ref.
