Main references (data with "?" refer to a reasonable guess; with
"??" to a total guess):
Morphology: Freund and Buzsaki, 1996, and references therein.
Number and connectivity: Freund and Buzsaki, 1996, and references therein.
Biochemistry and physiology: Assumed the same as for basket cells.
Type: Interneurons, inhibitory (GABA).
Location (Dentate Gyrus): Soma, axon and dendrites in the molecular layer.
Explicit morphological data: Not available?
Notes: As for other interneurons, missing data for morphology
and biochemistry may be filled in with basket cells.

specified; in parenthesis: number of cells of that type):
