Background: Positive immunoreactivity for corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) in cell bodies and neuronal processes in the central nucleus of the amygdala (CeA) in a rat. Overlays: Typical records of in vitro intracellular and patch-clamp recordings of membrane (A) and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) synaptic properties (B–D) of CeA neurons. CRF increases the GABAergic transmission through an increase of GABA release. Work done by Marisa Roberto, Ph.D., in the laboratory of George R. Siggins, Ph.D.
