Method P.127 left column bottom paragraph: "To further assess whether the heterogeneous short‐term plasticity observed is correlated to differences in Imp [GABAergic medial paracapsular intercalated] cells, additional analyses were performed. To this end [investigators] have studied several electrophysiological responses of the Imp connected neurons. [They] found that the passive and active membrane responses analysed were not significantly different between neurons forming facilitating, depressing or constant types of connections (P > 0.05, Kruskal–Wallis test, Table 2). A similar result was obtained comparing the same parameters of the pre‐ versus postsynaptic neurons within each group (P > 0.05, Mann–Whitney U‐test)."
