Bypassing interneurons: inhibition in neocortex
Connors, Cruikshank; Nature Neuroscience 10, 808 - 810 (2007) doi:10.1038/nn0707-808
A recent paper suggests a new form of inhibitory circuit in cortex, in which a pyramidal cell directly excites the presynaptic terminal of an inhibitory interneuron, allowing the rapid and powerful inhibition of another pyramidal cell.
