Recent evidence suggests that internal calcium stores and calcium-induced calcium release (CICR) provide an important source of calcium that drives short-term presynaptic plasticity at central synapses. Here we tested for the involvement of CICR in short-term presynaptic plasticity at six excitatory synapses in acute rat hippocampal and cerebellar brain slices. Depletion of internal calcium stores with thapsigargin and prevention of CICR with ryanodine have no effect on paired-pulse… CONTINUE READING
