This chapter shows that somatic mutations in the brain may be more frequent than previously believed, and they may result in substantial alterations in synaptic functions involved in learning and memory (i.e., they may have behaviorally significant effects even at the whole organism level). Alterations in the expression levels of genes in cortical tissues that are expressed in interneurons and at GABAergic synapses indicate that these complex processes may contribute to age-dependent changes in cell-to-cell variance within interneuronal populations.

Keywords:   interneurons, interneuronal variance, somatic mutations, GABAergic synapses, cell-to-cell variance
