The contribution of intersynaptic transmitter diffusion to the AMPA receptor EPSC time course was studied in cultured CA1 hippocampal neurons. Reducing release probability 20-fold with cadmium did not affect the time course of the averaged AMPA receptor EPSC, even when receptor desensitization was blocked by cyclothiazide, suggesting that individual synapses contribute independently to the AMPA receptor-mediated EPSC. Deconvolution of the averaged miniature EPSC from the evoked EPSC showed that… Expand
The speeding of EPSC kinetics during maturation of a central synapse
TLDR
It is shown that both components of decay, and also the risetimes, became faster during postnatal maturation, and support previous conclusions that glutamate clearance and receptor deactivation are important determinants of the fast decay component at immature synapses. Expand
Prolonged Decay of Evoked Inhibitory Postsynaptic Currents in Hippocampal Neurons Is Not Shaped by Asynchronous Release
TLDR
The results indicate that asynchronous release of synaptic vesicles cannot explain the prolonged decay of the GABA-ergic IPSC, and suggest that some interaction between the quanta at the pre- and/or post-synaptic level should result in a slower Decay of the eIPSC in comparison with that of mIPSC. Expand
Long-term potentiation alters the modulator pharmacology of AMPA-type glutamate receptors.
TLDR
Findings provide new evidence that LTP modifies AMPA receptor kinetics, and a simple increase in the channel opening rate provided the most satisfactory match with the LTP data. Expand
Calcium-Dependent Paired-Pulse Facilitation of Miniature EPSC Frequency Accompanies Depression of EPSCs at Hippocampal Synapses in Culture
TLDR
It was found that an increase in miniature EPSC frequency accompanied both single and multiple stimuli, and this mEPSC increase was facilitated during paired stimuli, even when the evoked synchronous release was depressed. Expand
Glutamate Transporters Contribute to the Time Course of Synaptic Transmission in Cerebellar Granule Cells
TLDR
Data indicate that glutamate transporters play a significant role in sculpting the time course of synaptic transmission at granule cell synapses, most likely by limiting the extent of glutamate spillover between adjacent synapses. Expand
Changes in synaptic structure underlie the developmental speeding of AMPA receptor–mediated EPSCs
TLDR
The main developmental change that permits submillisecond transmission at mature synapses is an alteration in the glutamate concentration waveform as experienced by AMPARs, which raises the possibility that structural alterations could be a general mechanism underlying the change in the time course of AMPAR-mediated synaptic transmission. Expand
Submillisecond AMPA Receptor-Mediated Signaling at a Principal Neuron–Interneuron Synapse
TLDR
Simulations based on a compartmental model of the interneuron indicated that the rapid postsynaptic conductance change determines the shape and the somatodendritic integration of EPSPs, thus enabling interneurons to detect synchronous principal neuron activity. Expand
Lack of AMPA receptor desensitization during basal synaptic transmission in the hippocampal slice.
TLDR
The results suggest that synaptic receptors do not desensitize in response to synaptically released glutamate during basal synaptic transmission. Expand

TLDR
The data and modeling indicate that transmitter uptake and cooperation between release sites are significant determinants of a slow “tail” of glutamate in the synaptic cleft, likely to limit postsynaptic receptor availability through desensitization. Expand
Maturation of EPSCs and Intrinsic Membrane Properties Enhances Precision at a Cerebellar Synapse
TLDR
It is suggested that concurrent developmental changes, which increase the temporal precision of EPSP-spike coupling, will increase the fidelity with which sensory information is processed within the input layer of the cerebellar cortex. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that diffusion, high-affinity glutamate uptake, and non-NMDA receptor desensitization are insufficiently rapid to limit the decays of evoked synaptic currents to those of miniature synaptic currents in microcultures of rat hippocampal cells. Expand
Activation and desensitization of glutamate-activated channels mediating fast excitatory synaptic currents in the visual cortex
TLDR
Direct evidence is presented that the rate of onset of desensitization is much slower than the decay rate of the response to a brief application of glutamate, implying that the decay of mEPSCs reflects channel closure into a state readily available for reactivation. Expand
Block of glutamate transporters potentiates postsynaptic excitation
TLDR
It is suggested that transporters speed glutamate clearance mainly by binding glutamate and that AMPA receptors are not saturated by synaptically released glutamate at 34 degrees C. Expand
Mechanisms generating the time course of dual component excitatory synaptic currents recorded in hippocampal slices
TLDR
The present results support a model in which the rise time and decay of the NMDA component are determined primarily by slow channel kinetics and the Decay of the non-NMDA component is due either to channel Kinetics or to desensitization. Expand
Channel kinetics determine the time course of NMDA receptor-mediated synaptic currents
TLDR
In cultured hippocampal neurons, it is found that the NMDA receptor antagonist D-2-amino-5-phosphonopentanoate has no effect on the slow e.p.s.c. when rapidly applied after activation of the synapse, suggesting that rebinding of glutamate does not occur. Expand
Saturation of postsynaptic glutamate receptors after quantal release of transmitter
Miniature excitatory postsynaptic currents (mEPSCs) were elicited from small numbers of release sites after brief microperfusion of Ba2+ and K+ onto proximal dendritic processes of hippocampalExpand
Prolonged presence of glutamate during excitatory synaptic transmission to cerebellar Purkinje cells
TLDR
It is concluded that the slow EPSC decay results from the continued presence of transmitter glutamate, and may be due to retarded transmitter diffusion around spines or to cross-talk between neighboring active synapses. Expand
Desensitization of AMPA receptors upon multiquantal neurotransmitter release
TLDR
The data indicate that AMPA receptors are desensitized by neurotransmitter and that this desensitization depends on the number of quanta in the synaptic cleft, and it is proposed that release of transmitter from many closely spaced sites prolongs the time of receptor-transmitter contact and thereby promotes desensItization. Expand
The time course of glutamate in the synaptic cleft.
TLDR
The time course of free glutamate predicts that dissociation contributes to the decay of the AMPA receptor-mediated postsynaptic current. Expand
Multivesicular release from excitatory synapses of cultured hippocampal neurons
TLDR
It is suggested that both receptor types may be saturated normally by synaptic release, and the fraction of AMPA and NMDA receptors occupied by transmitter following the release of a single quantum is similar. Expand
