Amygdala basolateral nuclear complex nonpyramidal SOM neuron

Name: Amygdala basolateral nuclear complex nonpyramidal SOM neuron
Description: Somatostatin-containing nonpyramidal neuron whose axon forms synaptic contacts with the distal dendrites and spines of neighboring pyramidal cells. Although generally considered an interneuron, at least some of these cells have distant axonal projections to the substantia innominata or entorhinal cortex. A subpopulation expresses neuropeptide Y.
Has role: Intrinsic neuron role
