The CA2 region of the hippocampus is no longer considered to be merely a transition zone between the CA1 and CA3 regions but as a distinct region with its own properties, inputs and outputs. In this seminar, an overview of the known properties of CA2 neurones will be given, focusing on the distinct morphological and electrophysiological features of inhibitory neurones of this region. The possible role of these neurones in the hippocampal circuitry will also be discussed.
