VIP interneurons contribute to avoidance behavior by regulating information flow across hippocampal-prefrontal networks
Inhibitory interneurons expressing vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) are known to disinhibit cortical neurons. However, it is unclear how disinhibition, occurring…Lee AT et al. | Neuron | April 30, 2019
