Spontaneous spiking activity of thousands of neurons in rat hippocampal dissociated cultures.

Nicholas M. Timme, Najja Marshall, Nicholas Bennett, Monica Ripp, Edward Lautzenhiser & John M. Beggs
These data contain a record of neuron spiking activity in rat hippocampal dissociated cultures. The recordings were performed for days in vitro (DIV) 6 through 35 with all cultures being recorded multiple times throughout development. The recordings were performed with a large multielectrode array (Multichannel Systems, square lattice, 60 electrodes, 200 μm interelectrode spacing, 30 μm electrode diameter, flat electrodes). The cultures were not stimulated, so these data represent spontaneous activity. In total, 435 recordings...

Slice patch clamp recordings from GABAergic neurons in the Substantia Nigra pars reticulata (SNr) of Thy1-ChR2 mice during proximal and full-field optogenetic stimulation.

Lior Tiroshi & Joshua A Goldberg
Raw data of slice patch clamp recordings of GABAergic neurons in the Substantia Nigra pars reticulata (SNr) of Thy1-ChR2 mice. In all experiments, SNr neurons were optogenetically stimulated using 470 nm LED light, while all glutamatergic and GABAergic inputs were pharmacologically blocked. Experiments were repeated under two stimulation conditions: a) Proximal stimulation targeting the soma and proximal dendrites (~130 um around the soma) b) Full-field illumination exciting the soma as well as the entire dendritic...

Spiking activity of dopaminergic neurons in mouse ventral tegmental area (VTA) during chemogenetic suppression of the mPFC, during two classical conditioning tasks

Clara Kwon Starkweather, Samuel J. Gershman & Naoshige Uchida
This is a dataset consisting of spike timings of optogenetically-identified dopamine neurons in the mouse ventral tegmental area (VTA) during classical conditioning. The conditioned stimuli (CS) are 1-second-long odor presentations, and the unconditioned stimuli (US/reward) are water droplet deliveries (40ms, although animal licking the water and consuming it takes longer). The delay time between CS and US ranged from 1.2s to 2.8s. We recorded from dopamine neurons in 2 different classical conditioning tasks. Task 1...
