Abstract

Activation of mGluRs has previously been reported to cause beta/gamma frequency oscillations in CA1 hippocampal slices. The present study reveals that pharmacological activation of mGluRs in vivo induces dentate EEG oscillations at the low end of the gamma frequency range, with peak activity just below 30 Hz.
