Angiotensin II inhibits long-term potentiation within the lateral nucleus of the amygdala through AT1 receptors.


Long-term potentiation (LTP) of field potentials in the lateral nucleus of the amygdala (LA) evoked by brief tetanic stimuli of the LA were observed in horizontal rat brain slices. The amplitude of field potentials was significantly enhanced after repetitive stimulation. When angiotensin II was administrated the induction of LTP was suppressed. This… (More)
