New methods of experimental control were used to examine neurons in terms of their ability to synchronize via known chemical synaptic mechanisms. Experiments were carried out in brain slices. Whole-cell patch-clamp recordings were made from visualized neurons. Sytematic differences were found in synchronization properties among different cell types, as well as differences in synchronization properties at different firing frequencies.
