Resumo

Afferent neurotransmission to hippocampal pyramidal cells can lead to long-term changes to their intrinsic membrane properties and affect many ion currents. One of the most plastic neuronal currents is the hyperpolarization-activated cationic current (I-h), which changes in CA1 pyramidal cells in response to many types of physiological and pathological processes, including auditory stimulation. Recently, we demonstrated that long-term potentiation (LTP) in rat hippocampal Schaffer-CA1 synapses is depressed by high-intensity sound stimulation. Here, we investigated whether a long-term high-intensity sound stimulation could affect intrinsic membrane properties of rat CA1 pyramidal neurons. Our results showed that I-h is depressed by long-term high-intensity sound exposure (1min of 110 dB sound, applied two times per day for 10days). This resulted in a decreased resting membrane potential, increased membrane input resistance and time constant, and decreased action potential threshold. In addition, CA1 pyramidal neurons from sound-exposed animals fired more action potentials than neurons from control animals; however, this effect was not caused by a decreased I-h. On the other hand, a single episode (1min) of 110 dB sound stimulation which also inhibits hippocampal LTP did not affect I-h and firing in pyramidal neurons, suggesting that effects on I-h are long-term responses to high-intensity sound exposure. Our results show that prolonged exposure to high-intensity sound affects intrinsic membrane properties of hippocampal pyramidal neurons, mainly by decreasing the amplitude of I-h. (AU)
