..., we recorded the electrical activities of both excitatory (pyramidal) and inhibitory (stellate) neurons. With anoxia, membrane potential ( V m ) depolarized in both cell types from −72.2 mV to −57.7 mV and from −64.5 mV to −46.8 mV in pyramidal and stellate neurons, respectively. While pyramidal cells...
