Abstract

Despite lacking N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors, cerebellar Purkinje cells are highly vulnerable to ischaemic insults, which lead them to die necrotically in an α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-isoxazole-4-propionic acid (AMPA) receptor-dependent manner. To investigate the electrical events leading to this cell death, we whole-cell clamped Purkinje cells in cerebellar slices. Simulated ischaemia evoked an initial hyperpolarization of Purkinje cells by 8.5 mV, followed by a regenerative 'anoxic depolarization' (AD) to -14 mV. The AD was prevented by glutamate receptor blockers. In voltage-clamp mode, we used the cells' glutamate receptors to sense the rise of extracellular glutamate concentration induced by ischaemia, with GABAA and GABAB receptors blocked and Cs+ as the main pipette cation. Ischaemia induced a small (
