Currently Unstable: Daily Ups and Downs in E-I Balance

Samuel J. Brunwasser, Keith B. Hengen

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


Balance between excitation and inhibition (E-I balance) in neural circuits is believed to be tightly regulated. To the contrary, in this issue of Neuron, Bridi et al. (2020) reveal that inverse oscillations of synaptic inhibition and excitation lead to peaks and valleys in E-I balance across the 24 h day.
