Cortical neuronal networks consist of excitatory glutamatergic principal cells (PCs) and GABAergic inhibitory interneurons (INs). Although INs form a minority of the cortical neuron population, they control key aspects of cortical network function by providing feedforward and feedback inhibition, controlling the formation of PC assemblies, defining the excitability of neuronal networks and the timing of the activation of PCs, and promoting synchrony of fast neuronal network oscillations (Freund and Buzsáki 1996; McBain and Fisahn 2001; Klausberger and Somogyi 2008; Sohal 2016; Strüber et al. 2017). INs are highly diverse and can be subdivided into several types on the basis of various criteria, such as intrinsic physiological properties, neurochemical marker content, morphological features, including the laminar distribution of the axon, and finally the postsynaptic target profile of their output (Freund and Buzsáki 1996; Hosp et al. 2014; Savanthrapadian et al. 2014; Yuan et al. 2017). On the basis of synaptic targets, INs have been classified into two major groups, perisomatic- and dendrite-targeting cells.
