The perirhinal cortex is crucially important in several forms of memory. Whilst it is important to understand the underlying mechanisms of this role in memory, little is known about the synaptic physiology or plasticity of this region of transitional cortex. In this study, we recorded evoked field potentials in superficial layers (approximately layer I) of(More)
Excitatory synaptic transmission in the perirhinal cortex exhibits marked homosynaptic paired pulse depression (PPD) at inter-pulse intervals between 100 and 1000 ms, being maximal at 200 ms. Additionally, there is greater PPD with stimulation of the pathway from the temporal cortex side than with stimulation of the pathway from the entorhinal cortex side.(More)
