In an in vitro slice preparation of the chick brain it is possible to record responses to single electrical stimuli from within the intermediate and medial part of the hyperstriatum ventrale (IMHV), a region known to be involved in learning. The amplitude of such responses is significantly increased by superfusion of the slice with 10 microM 4 beta-phorbol(More)
Continuous perfusion of a chick brain slice with 10 microM 4 beta phorbol 12,13 diacetate (PDAc) produces a significant increase in the amplitude of the response to electrical stimulation at 0.1 Hz recorded within the intermediate and medial part of the hyperstriatum ventrale (IMHV). This PDAc-induced potentiation and that induced by tetanising stimulation(More)
In an in-vitro slice preparation of the chick brain it is possible to induce persistent potentiation of responses to single electrical stimuli by giving two bursts of 300 stimuli at 5 Hz separated by ten minutes of control stimulation at 0.1 Hz. We investigated the morphological correlates of this potentiation in a group of 2 day old chicks using(More)
