This chapter begins with a brief discussion of GABAergic system. It then describes sixteen interneuronal species that inhabit the CA1 region of the hippocampus. It shows that there is a high level of order among the interneurons, in terms of their axonal termination zones and their postsynaptic target specificity, or the expression of immunocytochemical markers. The functional consequences of the extraordinary, ordered diversity apparent at the levels of molecules, cells, and networks are considered.

Keywords:   interneurons, neuronal organization, interneuronal subtypes, GABAergic system, CA1 region
