Basic electrophysiological properties in light-responsive and nonresponsive DG granule cells

Light-responsive neurons (n = 15)Nonresponsive neurons (n = 15)p Value (light-responsive vs nonresponsive)
Resting membrane potential−72.9 ± 1.2 mV−70.8 ± 2.1 mV0.5606
Capacitance14.2 ± 1.4 pF13.6 ± 1.4 pF0.8519
Input resistance232.5 ± 24.5 MΩ253.4 ± 25.8 MΩ0.5336
  • Quantification of resting membrane potential, capacitance, and input resistance values shows no difference between DG granule cells receiving the VTA GABA input and nonconnected neurons (i.e. light-responsive vs nonresponsive neurons).
