To characterize the low-frequency depression (LFD) of synaptic transmission in the visual cortex, we recorded field potentials and minimal excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) from layer II/III following intracortical stimulation at various frequencies in cortical slices of rats. Field potentials were stable at 0.017 Hz, but showed an amplitude(More)
This chapter considers methods for measurements of postsynaptic responses and simple approaches to the estimation of parameters of quantal release in synapses of the central nervous system of vertebrates. The use of these methods is illustrated by the analysis of single-fibre and "minimal" monosynaptic postsynaptic potentials (PSPs) or currents (PSCs)(More)
Recent data indicate that most "silent" synapses in the hippocampus are "presynaptically silent" due to low transmitter release rather than "postsynaptically silent" due to "latent" receptors of alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid type (AMPARs). That synapses bearing only N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDAR) receptors do exist is suggested by(More)
