These results are also in agreement with previous studies, in which fluoxetine treatment in combination with monocular deprivation produces an increase in the elongation of the tips of interneuronal dendrites [50], supporting the idea that inhibitory neurotransmission plays a key role in the reopening of the critical periods [20, 22,23].
Antho-RFamide (<Glu-Gly-Arg-PheN[H.sub.2]), the first sea anemone neuropeptide to be isolated, was demonstrated in dense-cored vesicles of bidirectional, interneuronal synapses of sea anemones (Westfall and Grimmelikhuijzen, 1993).

Disruptive patterns provide clues regarding the pathologies in the receptive field that can affect interneuronal correlations between synapses [2,28-30].
The summary of pharmacodynamics is (1) blockade of interneuronal NMDA receptors, (2) disinhibition of pyramidal cells leading to a glutamate surge, (3) activation of the AMPA receptors, (4) blockade of the excitotoxic extrasynaptic NMDA receptors, (5) activation of synaptogenic intracellular signaling and brain-derived neurotropic factor pathways, and (6) stimulation of the mammalian target of rapamycin.
This complex mechanism of pharyngeal phase of deglutition is controlled by the interneuronal circuit of the medullary swallow center.
This effect would be caused by an indirect pathway (i.e., interneuronal systems), including propriospinal neurons at the C3-C4 level, which mediate corticomotoneuronal inputs to the proximal arm muscles predominantly [20].
We propose that impaired autophagy plays a critical role in spinal hypersensitivity, to which reduced GABAergic interneuronal activity is a key contributor in NP.
The phase distribution of SCN neurons found to be a characteristic of a particular photoperiod is primarily driven by neurons in the ventral SCN, which is often defined by its expression of VIP, an important neuropeptide for interneuronal coupling in the clock.

Both sympathetic and the parasympathetic branches of the autonomic nervous system are composed of afferent and efferent, as well as interneuronal fibers.
